ORIGINAL DATA. — This species had previously been signalled in Mount Cameroon ( Brosset 2003), but no specimen attributed to this species was recorded during our field surveys.

HABITATS AND DISTRIBUTION. — According to Cotterill & Happold (2013), this species has diverse habitat, ranging from montane forest and moist savannah to rainforest savannah mosaic. It roosts singly or in small groups in caves. This species has been recorded in Mount Nimba in West Africa ( Guinea and Liberia), in central Nigeria ( Denys et al. 2013), in the Cameroonian Highlands, in Eastern Africa and southern Africa ( Cotterill & Happold 2013).

REMARK. — Though Rhinolophus simulator alticolus   has been suggested as a separate species by Csorba et al. (2003), it is still retained as a subspecies of Rhinolophus simulator   with the subspecies R. s. simulator Andersen, 1904   being restricted to eastern and southern Africa ( Simmons 2005).
