SPECIES Eonycteris major

Author:K. Andersen, 1910.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 8, 6: 625.
Common Name:Greater Dawn Bat
Type Locality:Malaysia, N Borneo, Sarawak, Mt. Dulit.
Distribution:Borneo, Mentawai Isls (Indonesia).
Status:IUCN/SSC Action Plan (1992) Not Threatened. IUCN 2003 Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Apparently does not include robusta and longicauda; see Heaney et al. (1987, 1998). Corbet and Hill (1992) suggested that the Mentawai Isls record may have been based on a large example of spelaea, but it appears that this material may actually represent an undescribed subspecies (K. Helgen, pers. comm.).
