Styloctenium wallacei

A Wallacean endemic known to occur only on Sulawesi and its offshore islands. This species is classified as near threatened by the IUCN ( Ruedas et al., 2010); however, declines associated with habitat loss in its limited range could lead to a future reassessment as vulnerable. It is a rare species in our study area, being known only from a single opportunistic record — an individual captured in a bird mist-net in July 2013 by TEM. This record was external to our formal bat survey protocols, and as such we did not include it in our quantitative mist net trapping dataset. We report this record as a minor range extension to the known range of S. wallacei , the species having been previously mapped as occurring across much of Sulawesi ( Bergmans & Rozendaal, 1988; Maryanto et al., 2011; Ruedas et al., 2010) but not Buton Island.
