Myotis oreias (Temminck)

Singapore Whiskered Bat (Myotis oreias 

The Singapore Whiskered Bat was described in the year 1840.  

The species, however, is known only from the type, which, moreover, is damaged, furthermore it is quite impossible that a bat species should be restricted to such a small region as Singapore.  


The ‘species’ thus is mentioned here only for the sake of completeness.
