SPECIES Chalinolobus neocaledonicus

Author:Revilliod, 1914.
Citation:In Sarasin and Roux, Nova Caledonia, A. Zool.: 355.
Common Name:New Caledonia Wattled Bat
Type Locality:New Caledonia, Canala.
Distribution:New Caledonia.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Endangered.
Comments:Often treated as a subspecies of gouldii (e.g., Koopman, 1971a, 1994; Tidemann, 1986), but evidence for synonymy is weak; I follow Flannery (1995b) in provisionally recognizing neocaledonicus as distinct pending further study.
