SPECIES Chaerephon jobensis

Author:Miller, 1902.
Citation:Proc. Biol. Soc. Wash., 15: 246.
Common Name:Northern Mastiff Bat
Type Locality:Indonesia, Prov. of Papua, Tjenderawasih Div. [= Geelvinck Bay], Yapen Isl [= Jobi Isl], Ansus.
Distribution:Seram (Moluccas), Yapen Isl (Indonesia), New Guinea, N and C Australia.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:plicatus species group. Listed as a subspecies of plicatus by Laurie and Hill (1954), but subsequently recognized as distinct by most authors. Revised by Felten (1964a), who included bregullae and solomonis; also see Hill (1983). In contrast, Flannery (1995a, b) treated bregullae and solomonis as distinct species based on morphological differences. The latter arrangement is provisionally followed here.
