Rhinolophus simulator K. Andersen 1904

A single specimen assigned to this species was collected just south of the Niassa Game Reserve, northern Mozambique. Although it matched R. simulator in most characters (including cranial measurements — Table 2 View TABLE ), the anterior upper premolar was tiny and mostly outside the toothrow (inside toothrow in R. simulator ) and the ear length was 17 mm which is extremely short for this species. Due to technical difficulties its echolocation call could not be recorded.

Field measurements: FA (adult male) 42.4 (1); Bm (adult male) 6 (1). Nose-leaf width was 7.8 for the single male.
