Hi Syd,

The taxonomy and distribution of the Eptesicus bats has changed greatly since the Australian Museum Mammal Book was first published. Australian members of Eptesicus are now referred to as Vespadelus and Vespadelus darlingtoni (Large Forest Bat), Vespadelus pumilus (Eastern Forest Bat), Vespadelus regulus (Regal Vespadelus) and Vespadelus troughtoni (Troughton's Vespadelus) all occur in south-east Queensland. Vespadelus vulturnus (Pale Vespadelus or Little Forest Bat) occurs up to the Queensland border so probably also creeps into the area.
