SPECIES Rhinopoma hardwickii

Author:Gray, 1831.
Citation:Zool. Misc., 1: 37.
Common Name:Lesser Mouse-tailed Bat
Type Locality:India, resticted to Bengal by Qumsiyeh et al. (1992).
Distribution:Morocco to Burma, south to Mauritania, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, and Kenya; Socotra Isl (Yemen).
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:See Qumsiyeh and Jones (1986), Harrison and Bates (1991), and Kock et al. (2001). Does not include macinnesi; see Van Cakenberghe and De Vree (1994). Sometimes spelled hardwickei (because the species was named after Major General Hardwicke), but the original spelling is hardwickii (see Kock et al., 2001). I follow Corbet and Hill (1992) and Kock et al. (2001) in using the original spelling.
