Category 2 RARE Not under immediate threat of extinction, but occurring in such small numbers and/or in such a restricted or specialized habitat that it could quickly disappear. Category 3 DEPLETED Although still occurring in numbers adequate for survival, the species has been heavily depleted and continues to decline at a rate that gives cause for serious concern. Category 4 INDETERMINANT Apparently in danger, but insufficient data cur- rently available on which to base a reliable assessment of status. Needs further study. Star listing * * *Species or subspecies critically endangered. Symbols (a) Full species. (b) Subspecies. E Exotic, introduced or captive populations believed more numerous than indigenous stock. M Under active management in a national park or other reserve. P Legally protested, at least in some parts of its range. R Included because of its restricted range. S Secrecy still desirable. T Subject to substantial export trade.
