SPECIES Miniopterus tristis

Author:Waterhouse, 1845.
Citation:Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1845: 3.
Common Name:Great Long-fingered Bat
Type Locality:Philippine Isls.
Distribution:Philippines; Sulawesi, Sanan Isl, New Guinea; Bismarck Arch., Solomon Isls, Vanuatu (= New Hebrides).
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Includes propritristis; see Koopman (1984c) and Hill (1983). Peterson (1981) and Maeda (1982) recognized more than one species in this complex, but did not agree on species limits; see Hill (1983), who argued convincingly that all of these forms should be regarded as subspecies of tristis pending further study. Koopman (1993) included bismarckensis in this complex, but also see Hill (1983), who suggested that this poorly-known taxon might be allied to magnater. Also see accounts in Flannery (1995a, b), Bonaccorso (1998), and Meinig (2002) under propritristis.
