SPECIES Pteropus temminckii

Author:Peters, 1867.
Citation:Monatsb. K. Preuss. Akad. Wiss. Berlin, 1867: 331.
Common Name:Temminck's Flying Fox
Type Locality:Indonesia, Molucca Isls, Amboina Isl; see Andersen (1912:318) for clarification.
Distribution:Buru, Ambon, Seram (Indonesia); nearby small islands; perhaps Timor Isl (Indonesia).
Status:CITES Appendix II. IUCN/SSC Action Plan (1992) No Data. IUCN 2003 Lower Risk (nt).
Comments:personatus species group. Does not include capistratus; see Flannery (1995b) and Bonaccorso (1998). This name is variously spelled "temmincki" and "temminckii"; I follow Bergmans (2001) in preferring the latter because it is the original spelling.
