Range Description

Pipistrellus sturdeei is known only from Hahajima Island in the Bonin (= Ogasawara) Islands, Japan (Abe 2005). Some experts believe that this bat never actually occurred in Japan, and that the type locality is in error (Abe 2005). Therefore, the true distribution and country of origin are unknown.
