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).

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.
