Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:The species occurs in limestone areas and is known to roost in caves (C. Francis and P. Bates pers. comm.). The species is not dependent on primary habitat and can survive in degraded areas and extends into agricultural zones and shares roosts with other species (P. Bates pers. comm.). A colony in Thailand roosted in loose association in limestone caves, with individuals at least 30 cm from one another. Reproductively active females have been collected in May and June in Lao PDR and Viet Nam.

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The species is vulnerable to disturbance of cave roosts by tourism and also the destruction of caves through limestone extraction (P. Bates pers. comm.).

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: The species occurs in a number of protected areas in Thailand, Lao PDR and Viet Nam.
