 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) - Lower Risk (lc) as Pipistrellus nanus  
    Comments: Usually placed in Pipistrellus or Hypsugo, but recently transferred to Neoromicia based on analyses of karyotype data (Kearney et al., 2002; Volleth et al., 2001). The oldest name for this species is africanus (see Koopman [1975], Meester et al. [1986], and Kock [2001b]), but the name nanus has been applied to this taxon extensively in the literature for many decades. A petition has been filed with the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature to conserve nanus in place of african...  
    Mandatory correction for gender concordance; Neoromicia has at times been treated as masculine but, as it derives from the feminine name Romicia, is correctly treated as feminine (Riccucci and Lanza, 2008)
