Range Description

Arborophila orientalis is apparently restricted to the eastern part of East Java, Indonesia, from the Yang Highlands eastwards, and thus occupies a range which historically covered only c.7,000 km2 and which today covers less than 2,500 km2. Its population was initially estimated at 1,000-10,000 individuals, but it has subsequently been found at several more sites and may considerably exceed this upper limit. The remaining area of suitable habitat suggests that a total of 11,000-28,000 pairs might still be present, but hunting pressure and variable habitat quality could mean that numbers are much lower than this (B. van Balen in litt. 2012). Its population is conservatively estimated to include 10,000-19,999 mature individuals.
