The Taiwanese population (C. f. flavomarginata), has declined in recent decades due to expansion of agricultural lands (VU A1c); the remnants are now stable or recovering slightly (T. Chen, pers. comm.). The mainland China population (C. f. sinensis) is probably Critically Endangered. In China and Taiwan combined, the species was considered Endangered (Zhao 1998, in China Red Data Book). The Ryukyu populations in Japan (C. f. evelynae) are small but relatively well protected and rated as Vulnerable in the 1999 Japanese Red List (Matsui and Ota 1999, Ota 2000).
