"A survey of the species of bats occurring on the island of Timor was conducted from February 27 to May 22, 1968. Eleven of the 22 species found are new records for the island, namely: Eonycteris spelaea, Macroglossus lagochilus, Taphozous melanopogon, Taphozous saccolaimus, Rhinolophus borneensis, Rhinolophus creaghi, Rhinolophus philippinensis, Pipistrellus tenuis, Miniopterus australis, Miniopterus magnater, and Miniopterus pusillus. Rhinolophus borneensis parvus, Rhinolophus creaghi timorensis, and Rhinolophus philippinensis montanus are new subspecies. A study of the literature and of the importnat museum collections of bats from Timor indicates that two other species probably occur there also. External structural characteristics and ecological data are given and the taxonomic status on Timor and adjacent islands is discussed for each species. An account of the history of bat study on the island and a discussion of the literature dealing with the bat fauna of Timor is included. An analysis of zoogeographical relationships with adjacent islands and major land masses is discussed and an attempt is made to account for the origin of each species of bat found on Timor"--P. 77.
