SPECIES Philetor brachypterus

Author:Temminck, 1840.
Citation:Monogr. Mamm., 2: 215.
Common Name:Rohu's Bat
Type Locality:Indonesia, Sumatra, Padang Dist.
Distribution:Nepal, W Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo, Philippines, Sulawesi, New Guinea, New Britain and New Ireland Isls (Bismarck Arch.). A record from Java is erroneous, and a record from Bangka Isl (Indonesia) does not appear to be authentic, see Corbet and Hill (1992).
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Reviewed by Hill (1966, 1971d, 1983); also see Corbet and Hill (1992), Bates and Harrison (1997), Flannery (1995a, b), and Bonaccorso (1998). Three subspecies are often recognized, but the actual pattern of variation is too complex to fit this taxonomy.
