 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) - Lower Risk (lc)  
    Comments: Reviewed by Harrison and Bates (1991), Horácek (1991), and Bates and Harrison (1997). Several subspecies are sometimes recognized (e.g., Harrison and Bates, 1991; Koopman, 1994), but Horácek (1991) and Horácek et al. (2000) have argued that geographic variation in size and coloration is clinal and therefore does not support recognition of local populations as subspecies
