Emballonura monticola

A widespread species found from Peninsular Malaysia to Sulawesi. It appears to be a rare species in our study area. A single male was captured in a hand net by GP and TEM in an extensive cave system (where D. crenulata was also present) (31 July 2014). This individual was distinguished from other emballonurids occurring in the region (notably E. alecto ) by its slightly smaller body mass and forearm length (see Table 2), and its distinctive long, worm-like penis ( Flannery, 1995). It has been previously mapped as occurring on Buton Island (Bates et al., 2008a).
