Range Description

This species is endemic to India and is known only from the villages of Katangi, Katanga and Richhai in Jabalpur district of Madhya Pradesh (Khajuria 1970). Surveys in the early 1990s in Madhya Pradesh by the Zoological Survey of India did not record this species in places other than the above (M.K. Ghosh and Tarapada Bhattacharyya pers. comm. 2007). It has been recorded from sea level to 200 m asl. The extent of occurrence is less than 5,000 km and the area of occupancy is less than 500 km based on the likely foraging radius of 10 km and roost fidelity of similar sized hipposiderid species (Brosset 1966, Molur et al. 2002).
