Native to Cambodia, China, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam the species is reported to be widespread and seemingly common in suitable habitat of a mixture of forest and grassland. While this species as a whole is considered Least Concern, some of its subspecies – notably L. n. whiteheadi from Hainan, L. n. engelbachi from southern Laos and L. n. annamensis from southern Vietnam are rare and threatened.
Threats to species:
The population is declining locally owing to ongoing habitat destruction and unsustainable levels of hunting
