Range DescriptionThis sub-Saharan bat species ranges through much of West and Central Africa. It has been recorded from Senegal in the west through to Togo, and then from Nigeria to southern Sudan and western Uganda, with patchy records from the Congo basin (although it likely occurs throughout the Congo). It ranges as far south as central Democratic Republic of the Congo. The record of this species from Gabon needs to be reexamined as it may represent a misidentified specimen of Rhinolophus sylvester (Dowsett et al. 1991).
