Despite being one of only six wild cat species currently classified by the IUCN as Endangered, the flat-headed cat Prionailurus planiceps has received relatively little conservation attention and is arguably the least known of all the world’s wild cats. Camera traps are increasingly being used throughout the historical range of this species (Peninsular Thailand and Malaysia, Borneo and Sumatra), yet it is infrequently recorded, raising concern as to its status (Wilting et al. 2010). Here we provide details of three recent observations of flat-headed cats in the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary (LKWS), a protected, but highly fragmented and degraded collection of forest patches along the Kinabatangan river, in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo.
