DistributionRead full entry
Range DescriptionThis species appears to be widely distributed from Myanmar in the west (recorded from Hpo-an and Mawlamyine; Bates et al. 2000), through southern China (including Hainan Island) and much of Southeast Asia, as far east as the island of New Guinea. Within this range it has been recorded from many island localities including Sumatra (a single locality; Indonesia), western Java (Indonesia), northern Borneo (Sabah, Malaysia and Kalimantan, Indonesia), Timor (East Timor and Indonesia), and Seram (Indonesia). A number of records of Miniopterus schreibersii have been reidentified as Miniopterus magnater (T. Reardon pers. comm.). It has been recorded from sea level to 2,100 m asl, but this is not clear given identification problems.
