New Guinea free-tailed bat
The New Guinea Free-tailed Bat (Tadarida kuboriensis, sometimes designated the New Guinea Mastiff Bat), is an extant species of free-tailed bat that inhabits the Chimbu highlands of Papua New Guinea. Although Koopman describes T. kuboriensis as a subspecies of the nearby T. australis (1982, 1994), the reference catalogue Mammal Species of the World suggests that recent analysis establishes these as distinct species.
