Abstract
A small number of bats obtained from Cambodia comprises two species new to the fauna of this country: Megaderma lyra and Rhinolophus malayanaus. The o ccurrence of Rousettus amplexicaudatus, previously only generally known fro m Cambodia, is confirmed. Taphozous melanopogon, Hipposideros armiger, and Tadarida (Chaerephon) plic ata previously recorded for Cambodia are confirmed and their distribution i n this country is detailed. A critical checklist of Cambodian Chiroptera re corded until present admits 30 species of seven families: Pteropodidae (10 species), Emballonuridae (3 species), Megadermatidae (2 species), Rhinoloph idae (3 species), Hipposideridae (3 species), Vespertilionidae (7 species), and Molossidae (1 species). Six species recorded for Cambodia are rejected , because their collecting localities are not within the country, or their identity is doubtful: Pteropus vampyrus, P. giganteus, Cynopterus horsfield i, Rhinolophus rouxii, Hipposideros bicolor, and Pipistrellus macropus.
