Hipposideros pelingensis

Previously considered part of the H. dinops species complex, H. pelingensis is now treated a separate species endemic to Sulawesi and its offshore islands ( Wilson & Reeder, 2015). It is considered near-threatened by the IUCN ( Hutson et al., 2008c) due to limestone extraction and other forms of disturbance within its forest habitats. It is rare within our study area, being known from a single individual caught by NA and OC in a harp trap within LFR (2 August 2014). It has been previously mapped as occurring on Buton ( Hutson et al., 2008c).
