|Scientific Name:||Polyplectron bicalcaratum|
|Species Authority:||(Linnaeus, 1758)|
|Taxonomic Source(s):||del Hoyo, J., Collar, N.J., Christie, D.A., Elliott, A. and Fishpool, L.D.C. 2014. HBW and BirdLife International Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World. Lynx Edicions BirdLife International.|
|Taxonomic Notes:||Polyplectron bicalcaratum (Sibley and Monroe 1990, 1993) has been split into P. bicalcaratum and P. katsumatae following Chang et al. (2008) and Collar (2009) on the basis of genetic and morphological differences.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
This species has an extremely large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). Despite the fact that the population trend appears to be decreasing, the decline is not believed to be sufficiently rapid to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

|Population:||The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be locally common to fairly common and rare (del Hoyo et al. 1994).
Trend Justification: The population is suspected to be declining owing to habitat loss and degradation and, locally, overexploitation.
|Current Population Trend:||Decreasing|
