Adult Bat

Portrait of Rhinolophus smithersi species novo, one of four new cryptic species recently described within the R. hildebrandtii complex. Characterized by a horseshoe-shaped anterior noseleaf (Fig. 1) and the different parts (lancet, connecting process, sella and noseleaf) often differ in size and shape and can be diagnostic in identifying species.
