 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: IUCN - Vulnerable  
    Comments: Sometimes referred to fuliginosa (Heaney et al., 1987; Jenkins, 1982), but represents a distinct species (Corbet and Hill, 1992; Ruedi, 1995). In Java C. orientalis is confined to the mountains and replaced by C. brunnea in the lowlands. Ruedi (1995) distinguished lawuana as a subspecies. Karyotype has 2n = 38, FN = 56 (Ruedi and Vogel, 1995)
