Conservation Actions

The range of this species includes the Daweishan and Xishuangbanna National Nature Reserves.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
