Citation:Monatsb. K. Preuss. Akad. Wiss. Berlin, 1861: 709.
Common Name:Bornean Horseshoe Bat
Type Locality:Malaysia, N Borneo, Sabah, Labuan Isl.

Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:megaphyllus species group. Includes chaseni and importunus; see Hill (1983). Formerly included javanicus, celebensis, madurensis, and parvus (e.g., by Goodwin [1979] and Hill and Thonglongya [1972]) but see Hill (1983) and Kitchener et al. (1995a). Type material discussed by Csorba (2002). Subspecies limits are somewhat unclear, and the relationships of various forms to celebensis and malayanus remains problematic; see Csorba et al. (2003). This complex may include more than one species, see Csorba et al. (2003).
