Notes

The populations from the upper part of peninsular Thailand (Prachuap Khiri Khan and Phetchaburi) seem to be intermediate between ssp.malayana and ssp.militum. The populations from Ratchaburi to Kanchanaburi could also be this taxon. I tentatively treat these as ssp.lioneli from Tenasserim. Further taxonomic and distributional studies are needed.
