Comments:Formerly included in europaeus (see Corbet, 1978c, Gromov and Baranova, 1981, also Zhang et al., 1997); but considered distinct by Corbet (1984), Zaitsev (1984), and Bannikova et al. (1996). Range and subspecific boundaries uncertain, partly due to confusion with Hemiechinus, see Corbet (1988:144). Indomalayan range mapped by Corbet and Hill (1992), Chinese range by Zhang et al. (1997).
