Four species of otters have been recorded from Malaysia and Singapore in the past: Lutra lutra (Common or Eurasian Otter), Lutra sumatrana (Hairy-nosed Otter), Lutrogale perspicillata (Smooth Otter) and Amblonyx cinereus (Oriental Small-clawed Otter). All four are listed in the Threatened Species Categories of the IUCN Red List of Threatened Animals: L. lutra is designated ‘Vulnerable’ and the status of the other three Asian species are ‘Insufficiently Known’ due to lack of information. From a… 
Establishing the foundation for an applied molecular taxonomy of otters in Southeast Asia
TLDR
A multigene data set comprised of segments from 13 nuclear and 5 mitochondrial loci was used to develop a provisional set of diagnostic nucleotides that can be potentially used to identify the four species of Southeast Asian otters from noninvasively collected biological samples, such as feces.
Conservation Prospects of Smooth-coated Otter Lutrogale perspicillata (Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, 1826) in Rajasthan
This chapter attempts to elucidate conservation ecology of Smooth-coated Otter Lutrogale perspicillata through a review based on past studies in Rajasthan. Otters are semiaquatic members of the
Status of smooth coated otter (Lutrogale perspicillata Sindica) in Pakistan
TLDR
Smooth coated otter is a top carnivore of wetlands and feeds mainly (up to 96%) upon fish and is considered to be a suitable indicator of pollution level in a wetland.
Biology and Ecology of Asian Small-Clawed Otter Aonyx cinereus (Illiger, 1815): A Review
The Asian small-clawed otter is the smallest among the 13 extant species of otters. It has a large distribution range extending from India in South Asia through Southeast Asia up to Taiwan and
DISTRIBUTION OF OTTERS IN THE TROPEANG ROUNG, KOH KONG PROVINCE, CAMBODIA
Two species of otters are found along Tropeang Roung River, the smooth-coated otter (Lutrogale perspecillata) and the hairy-nosed otter (Lutra sumatrana). The distribution of these species was
A New Subspecies Identification and Population Study of the Asian Small-Clawed Otter (Aonyx cinereus) in Malay Peninsula and Southern Thailand Based on Fecal DNA Method
TLDR
The results show that Thai subspecies A. cinereus may have migrated to Kelantan from Thai mainland, and suggest the classification of a new subspecies from Malay Peninsula, the small-clawed otter named A.cinereUS kecilensis.
Lutra lutra (Carnivora: Mustelidae)
TLDR
Lutra lutra, commonly known as the Eurasian otter, is the most widely distributed of the lutrinids (otters) and is primarily a piscivorous predator but also preys on amphibians, crustaceans, small mammals, birds, and reptiles.
STATUS OF OTTER SPECIES IN THE ASIAN REGION STATUS FOR 2007
Four species of river otter inhabit the Asian wetlands, while one species of sea otter of which there is little ecological information so far is found in the coastal areas of northern Japan. Of the
NEW INFORMATION ABOUT THE HAIRY-NOSED OTTER (Lutra sumatrana) IN VIETNAM
The Hairy-nosed Otter (Lutra sumatrana) is regarded by the IUCN Otter Specialist Group as one of the five species of otter in greatest need of conservation. They are restricted to only a few

TLDR
The volume before us is, perhaps, the most generally interesting of the four devoted to birds, seeing that it treats of groups like the pigeons, the sand-grouse, the game-birds, and the ducks and geese, which claim attention from a wider circle of readers than is attracted by the perching birds and picarians.
