This species was recorded at three sites in central and northern Mozambique. The male had bright orange axillary tufts in the armpits. Peak echolocation frequencies were 102.2 kHz (female; ANABAT, n = 1) and 104 kHz (male; Pettersson D240x, n = 1) 3–5 kHz lower than in South Africa ( Schoeman and Jacobs, 2008; Monadjem et al., 2010)

Field measurements: FA (adult male) 46.3 (1); Bm (adult male) 9.5 (1); FA (adult female) 46.3 (1); Bm (adult female) 10.0 (1). Nose-leaf width was 7.9 for the single female.
