SPECIES Rhinolophus keyensis

Author:Peters, 1871.
Citation:Monatsb. K. Preuss. Akad. Wiss. Berlin, 1871: 307.
Common Name:Kai Horseshoe Bat
Type Locality:Key-Inseln (= Kai Isls).
Distribution:Many islands in Indonesia; see Kitchener et al. (1995a).
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Endangered.
Comments:megaphyllus species group. Revised by Kitchener (1995a), who apparently overlooked the fact that keyensis is the oldest name for this complex (not simplex). Not included in megaphyllus, although see Corbet and Hill (1992). Includes parvus; see Kitchener et al. (1995a), but see also Bergmans and van Bree (1986). The holotype of annectans is a damaged skull that is difficult to assign with any certainty, but may represent parvus; see Kitchener et al. (1995a).
