Description

Chaerephon plicatus is known locally as wrinkled-lipped bat in English or Kelasar Rumah in Malay. Wrinkled-lipped bat is called so because the upper lip for this species is heavily wrinkled. The fur for this species is dense and soft. The upperparts are covered in short dark brown fur, while the underparts are paler with grey tips to the fur. Same with free-tailed bat, Mops mops, the ears joined across the top of head by narrow flap of skin. Wrinkled-lipped bats occur in Sri Lanka, India through southern China, Southeast Asia, Philippines, Sumatra and Java.
