Ah yes. I've seen that article. It isn't very accurate however, because T. asperrimus is not CITES protected.

On this site there is a similar article, which is more accurate:

Very interesting, so far T. asperrimus was only known from the provinces bordering with Vietnam, this one is very near to the T. vietnamensis distribution.

And concrats on the publication of a captive T. wenxianensis photo from one of our forum members.
