Committee's view
SINAV 4:4 is incorrectly cited by Wang & Hails (2007) and Lim (2009) although the record was from SINAV 4:6. Despite being the first record for Singapore, no descriptions are available in SINAV 4:4. Wang & Hails (2007) states that personnal communications with David Wells confirmed that the primary observers noticed "characteristic tail wagging behaviour was noted and used as a confirmation of this species".
Verdict Accepted / Wild (Unverifiable)
