Abstract

Leaf-nosed bats from the northern part of West Malaysia and from southern Thailand hitherto referred to Hipposideros bicolor have been found to represent two species, H. bicolor and H. pomona, the former extending east to Java, Borneo and the Philippine Islands, the latter north to Vietnam and southern China and west to Burma and India. Further east, macrobullatus from Sulawesi and Ceram Island (whence it is recorded for the first time) is also thought to be specifically distinct, although previously considered to be a subspecies of H. bicolor. The distribution of H. fulvus is reviewed: this species is very similar to H. pomona with which it has at times been confused.
