Coromandel pipistrelle

New material

Mandalay Division: Pagoda Hill, 12.3. 2003, 1 ♂ (MN2). 

Previous records from Myanmar

Kachin State ( Anthony, 1941 and Smithsonian Institution/LACM). Speci- mens previously referred to this species from Shan State [Pyaunggaung in Ryley (1914) were subsequently referred to P. paterculus by Wroughton (1916)] and from Bago Division: [Bago = Pegu in Wroughton and Davidson (1918)] and Tanintharyi Division: [Myeik = Mergui in Lind- say (1926)] were subsequently included in a new species P. peguensis  by Sinha (1969).


This is a small species of pipistrelle ( Tables 1 and 2), whose external measure- ments can be confused with P. tenuis  (Temminck, 1840). The cranial and dental measurements are usually larger than those of this latter species ( Bates and Harrison, 1997).
