SPECIES Rhinolophus maclaudi

Author:Pousargues, 1897.
Citation:Bull. Mus. Natn. Hist. Nat. Paris, 3: 358.
Common Name:Maclaud's Horseshoe Bat
Type Locality:Guinea, Conakry.
Distribution:Guinea. A record from Nigeria was based on misidentified specimens (Fahr et al., 2002).
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (nt). Fahr et al. (2002) proposed that this be changed to Endangered.
Comments:maclaudi species group. Smith and Hood (1980) included ruwenzorii in this taxon, but morphological differences and a major range disjunction indicate that maclaudi and ruwenzorii are distinct species; see Csorba et al. (2003) and Fahr et al. (2002). Revised by Fahr et al. (2002), who provided a key to species in the maclaudi species group.
