Author:Grandidier, 1912.
Citation:Bull. Mus. Natl. Hist. Nat. Paris, 18: 8.
Common Name:Grandidier's Trident Bat
Type Locality:Madagascar, near Diégo-Suarez (=Antsiranana).
Distribution:Known only from the type locality.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) – Data Deficient.
Comments:Known only from the holotype. Often included in furculus (e.g., Hayman and Hill, 1971; Koopman, 1993, 1994), but see Peterson et al. (1995). Originally spelled aurita but emended to auritus by Peterson et al. (1995), presumably to agree in gender with the generic epithet.
