This species is protected in Thailand, according to Ministerial Regulation No. 4, 1995, under the Wild Animal Preservation and Protection Act 1992, Article 6.  While the ssp. aeacus is quite common, the ssp. malaiianus is instead quite uncommon with few sightings in Peninsular Thailand and in the island of Koh Tao, where it seems more common.
