Intermediate Horseshoe Bat (Rhinolophus affinis)
Binomial name Rhinolophus affinis
The Intermediat Horseshoe Bat (Rhinolophus affinis) is a species of bat in the Rhinolophidae family. It is found in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The genus Rhinolophus, commonly called horseshoe bats, comprises approximately 69 distinct species and the only genus of subfamily Rhinolophinae. This is the largest group within the Rhinolophidae family of bats, though they show very little in the way of ecological diversity and are very much a variation on the same theme.
Their common name comes from the large horseshoe-shaped nose leaf used for directing their ultrasound.
They have very broad, rounded wings and very fluttery flight patterns, the "archetypal flying bat". They occur over a wide range of temperate to tropical woodland and open habitat where they catch insects in mid flight and also glean insects and spiders from foliage while hovering in front of their prey.
They are thought to represent very closely the ancestral form of the "microbat" group and so are considered among the more primitive of the whole Microchiroptera.
The females have a pair of mammary glands and two "false nipples" above and to the side of the genital opening, which newborn bats cling to for a few days after birth.
· Dorsal fur is darker or lighter brown, sometimes ochraceous buff. Ventral fur is from brown to cream-buff.
· Juveniles are lighter than adults.
· A medium to fairly large horseshoe bat. Over its range, forearm length varies between 46.0-55.5mm. Body masses 13.5 - 14.6 g from bats in Yunnan. Forearm lengths of Chinese bats 50.2-54.9 mm (n = 16).
· The sella is pandurate, slightly concave. The connecting process is rounded. The lancet is straight sided, its tip is pointed.
The species is most easily confused with R. sinicus, from which it is best distinguished by its straight-sided lancet and the long second phalanx of the third digit (66.3-80.4% of the length of the metacarpal). Unequivocal separation can be performed by sequencing the control region of mtDNA. Echolocation call frequencies overlap with those emitted by R. sinicus. R. affinis is also typically a larger species, though overlap occurs with R. sinicus at forearm lengths between 50-51 mm. The graph below shows frequency of most energy in echolocation calls plotted against forearm length (FAL) for R. affinis (red) and R. sinicus (black). Note the extensive overlap in call frequency, but only small overlap in forearm length. The bats calling at < 75 kHz were R. affinis from Guangdong.
· Csorba et al . (2003) notes that this bat occurs at altitudes from 670 metres to 1692 metres.
Roost sites and roosting behaviour
· Generally they roost in caves, but we found some individuals using the hollow of the trunk in the tropical forests in Xishuang banna, south Yunnan province.
· This species often shares roosts with other bat species in Yunnan.
Emergence and flight pattern
· Most rhinolophid bats have wing shapes that make them adept at foraging in cluttered environments.
· Little known
The echolocation call is a long constant frequency signal, with a brief frequency-modulated start and tail. Call frequency seems to be quite variable. One bat from Guangdong called with most energy at 73.6 kHz, bats in Guangxi, and Yunnan at 86.6 - 86.4 kHz, Henan bats at 82.8-83.3 kHz. Call frequencies overlap with those used by R. sinicus, and so is not a diagnostic feature for separating these species.
