 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: IUCN 2003 - not evaluated; not considered in IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001)  
    Comments: Originally described as a subspecies of blythii, but recently shown to lie outside a clade including blythii, myotis, and oxygnathus; see Ruedi and Mayer (2001). Also see Borg (1998) and Castella et al. (2000). Accordingly, punicus is treated as a separate species here
