Committee's view
No description in SINAV 18:4. Lim (2009) states "Single bird claimed to have been photographed by JEL ... ... but the photograph was not available for examination". Given that many other records lack such an explicit phrasing, we presume this suggests rejection. The photograph was reportedly inspected by the late Ong Kiem SIan and we defer to judgements by Wang & Hails (2007) in accepting this record.
Verdict Accepted / Wild (Unverifiable)
