Main Article Content
The Mainland Serow Capricornis sumatraensis is an under-studied, enigmatic rupicarin in the family Bovidae that lives in remote parts of the interior of Cambodia’s mountain ranges, most of which border neighboring countries. Their population status in Cambodia is unclear but thought to be in decline. Our records stem from steep forested areas and never in open meadows or clearings. Our fairly robust camera trap records, including direct observations, suggest that Virachey National Park in the northeastern corner of the country might be the species’ last best chance for survival in the wild in Cambodia.
