REMARK

Previous specimens from Ghana-Togo Highlands were from Breniasi, Worawora and Jasikan (AMNH; BMNH; Grubb 1971) and from Ahoué-houé, Agou, Aledjo, Fazao, Misahohé and Palimé in Togo ( De Vree et al. 1969, 1970; Robbins 1980). We tentatively label these bats Hipposideros cf. ruber   as at least three different lineages of bats affiliated with H. ruber sensu   strictu from East Africa occur in Ghana, lineages B1, and D2 ( Vallo et al. 2008, 2011), or what Monadjem et al. (2013) called lineage E2, or possibly lineage B1 also reaching into the Dahomey Gap ( Benin) since our specimens are all from east of the Volta River. The distribution of specimens from West Africa weakens the assumption that H. cf ruber   is a forest species.. In Côte d’Ivoire Fahr (1996) made 70 captures of H. cf. ruber   , 69.2% of which were in the moist forest zone, 15.4% in forest savanna mosaic and 15.4% in savanna formations.

CONSERVATION STATUS. — Listed as “Least Concern” on the IUCN Red List, Hipposideros cf. ruber   appears to be still relatively common as our findings from three localities indicate.
