Hipposideros diadema


Hipposideros diadema

A widespread species occurring from Southeast Asia to Northern Australia. It appears to be rare on Buton. A single individual was captured by NA and OC in a harp trap within KFR (14 July 2014), and two further individuals were opportunistically observed near the centre of LFR in 2014 after disturbance created during the cutting of a transect. We report our records as a minor range extension for H. diadema . The species has been previously mapped as occurring throughout mainland Sulawesi ( Csorba et al., 2008b), but has not been noted as occurring on Buton .
