Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as very rare in Sumatra and almost extinct in Thailand. The nominate race is thought to number 1,000 individuals (del Hoyo et al. 1994).
Trend justification: There are no data on population trends; however, habitat loss and degradation, in combination with trapping pressure, are suspected to be driving a moderately rapid decline.
