Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 8, 15: 496.
Common Name:Bifax Long-eared Bat
Type Locality:Australia, Queensland, Herberton.
Distribution:N Western Australia, N Northern Territory, coastal Queensland, NE New South Wales (Australia); Papua New Guinea.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc) as N. bifax; IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (nt) as N. daedalus; but N. daedalus not listed in IUCN 2003 (lapsus).
Comments:Included in gouldi by Koopman (1984c, 1993, 1994), but see Parnaby (1987, 2002a). Also see Flannery (1995a). The status of daedalus is uncertain; data presented by Parnaby (1987) suggested that it may represent a distinct species, but Bonaccoroso (1998) indicated that it may not be distinct from bifax even at the subspecies level.
