 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) - Lower Risk (lc)  
    Comments: Often called temminckii, but see Hill and Thonglongya (1972). Does not include collinus; see Kitchener et al. (1997b). Reviewed in part by Bates and Harrison (1997) and Kitchener et al. (1997b); see also Tate (1942a). There is some confusion regarding the use of this name in S Asia, see Hendrichsen et al. (2001b)
