TAXONOMIC STATUS: Several of these nominal taxa have been treated as separate species. B. rufoflavus [Peninsular Malaysia] and B. baguionensis [Philippines] are particularly distinct in colour pattern. They may prove to be separate species, but from the material available from a few sites, they appear to be closely similar in morphology to B. flavescens (Williams, 1991 [pdf]). Until more evidence to the contrary is available from critical studies of patterns of variation, I shall treat them as parts of a single variable species.

DISTRIBUTION: Oriental Region, Sumatran border.
