Listed as Vulnerable as this species appears to be primary forest dependent and based on the current loss of primary forest in the Lesser Sundas, it has likely undergone a 30% population decline over the last ten years and deforestation is continuing, hence this decline is predicted to continue for at least the next ten years. Taxonomic revision of this species complex is needed. This assessment is based on lesser Sunda populations since specimens from mainland southeast Asia are likely to be a distinct species.

|Range Description:||The current distribution of this species appears to be very disjunct; being found in Borneo, Lesser Sundas, Bali, Sumbawa and Sumba in Indonesia (Corbet and Hill 1992), and possibly in Kon Kha Kinh and Pu Mat, Viet Nam (Hendrichsen et al. 2001). However, the specimens from mainland Southeast Asia may be a distinct, unrecognized species. Many of these records could also be K. hardwicki. This species is not found in Thailand (S. Bumrungsri pers. comm.). The type locality for this species is south Flores, Lesser Sundas, Indonesia.|
