Abstract

Borneo has a significant role to play in the conservation of bat diversity in Southeast Asia, yet there is little

island. We report the results of a four week harp-trap and mist-net survey of four limestone karst formations

(a Pipistrellus and Rhinolophus) that may represent new species, and three (Hipposideros bicolor, Myotis

dependent and patchily distributed Hipposideros larvatus, Rhinolophus creaghi and R. pusillus, were highly

scattered, localities including four Red-Listed species (R. creaghi, M. montivagus, Murina rozendaali and

Kalimantan and present taxonomic data from 135 specimens collected during this study. This represents the

for bat diversity and conservation in Borneo. Threats to this area include disturbance from bird nest collection

associated forests into a protected area to safeguard this biological resource.
