Overview

Distribution

Range Description

This species has been recorded from Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, the island of Borneo, the Indonesian islands of Java, Sulawesi, Mendanau, Kangean, Flores, the Togian Islands and Karakelong (Corbet and Hill 1992; Flannery 1995) and Taiwan (Smith et al. 2008). There are doubtful records of this species by Huynh et al. (1994) from Sa Pa and Hanoi in Viet Nam (Bates et al. 1999). Records of a Myotis species from New South Wales, Australia have been allocated to M. adversus but refer to M. macropus (T. Reardon pers. comm.). The Vanuatu record is of unclear taxonomic affinity (T. Reardon pers. comm.), but is included here pending resolution of its taxonomic status.

Ecology

Habitat

Habitat and Ecology

Habitat and Ecology
It is presumed to have similar ecological requirements to M. moluccarum in that it is a lowland species associated with streams, lakes and other waterbodies from which it captures fish, frogs and other prey. It presumably roosts in small colonies in caves, man made tunnels and other subterranean habitats.
In Taiwan this species occurs mainly at low to middle elevations, and is known to roost in caves and tunnels (Smith et al. 2008). Extralimitally, they are known to feed over water, where they catch insects.

Justification
Listed as Least Concern as the species has a wide distribution range, and is not thought to be in decline. However, there is no information available on population numbers, abundance or threats. The issue is complicated because the species is difficult to identify, and is probably being confused with other species.
