Distribution is along the Great Dividing Range from Cape
York to around Kempsey in NSW. An uncommon, poorly known species. Roosts in
well-lit parts of caves & mineshafts. Usually in small groups but colonies
of up to 500 are known. These were photographed in a carport under a house
where they regularly come in to roost temporarily during the night in between
feeding sorties in the surrounding forest.
There are a number of species of small insectivorous bat (Microbats) in this region. They can be difficult to tell apart without close detailed examination.
