Abstract

Hipposideros edwardshilli n.sp., H. wollastoni parnabyi n.subsp. and H. w. fasensis n.subsp. are described on the basis of electrophoretic and morphological analysis. All are members of the Hipposideros cyclops group of Hill (1963). Hipposideros edwardshilli is closely related to H. corynophyllus. Additional material of H. corynophyllus (previously known from a single specimen with broken forearms) is described.
