Notes
The taxonomic status of populations from Laos and Vietanam is still unclear. Callaghan,2009 regarded it as nominotypical subspecies, however the markings on the underside are brown not black. I follow Monastyrskii & Devyatkin,2015 and regard it as ssp.argentea provisionally. Further study is needed.
