There are three recognized subspecies of Sumatran Rhinos: Dicerorhinus sumatrensis sumatrensis (Western), on Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula and formerly Thailand and Indochina; Dicerorhinus sumatrensis lasiotis formerly in Burma and Eastern India; Dicerorhinus sumatrensis harrissoni (Eastern) on Borneo. Only Dicerorhinus sumatrensis sumatrensis and Dicerorhinus sumatrensis harrissoni are definitely know to survive. Dicerorhinus sumatrensis lasiotis is probably extinct, but there are persistent rumors/reports that a few may survive near the India-Burma border.

Eastern (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis harrissoni )
Western (Dicerorhinus sumatr
ensis sumatrensis)
