|Scientific Name:||Rhinolophus mitratus Blyth, 1844|
Earlier included under R. philippinensis Waterhouse, 1843 (Dobson 1876, Tate and Archbold 1939). Sinha (1973) and Csorba et al. 2003 regarded it to be more similar to R. pearsonii Hodgson, 1851. Simmons (2005) treats it as distinct species under the trifoliatus species-group.
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Data Deficient ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Csorba, G., Molur, S. & Srinivasulu, C.|
