Population justification: The total population is suspected to number 20,000-49,999 individuals based on a conservative estimate of c.2,000 individuals in Cambodia (F. Goes in litt. 2011) and an estimate of c.5,000 individuals in Thailand.
Trend justification: This species is suspected to be experiencing a slow to moderate population decline owing to continued habitat loss and degradation and on-going hunting pressure.
