It was described as a new species in 1954 by Villy Aellen. The eponym for the species name " marisae " was Aellen's wife (her name was presumably Marisa). Of the name, Aellen wrote, "Dédiée à ma femme qui m'a accompagné et secondé au cours de ce voyage," which translates to: "Dedicated to my wife who accompanied and assisted me on this trip."Description[ edit ]
It is a small species of horseshoe bat , with a forearm length of 41 mm (1.6 in). It has long ears. Its fur is uniformly dark gray, while its ears and wing membranes are dark brown. Its nose-leaf is black around the edges, with a light brown sella .Range and habitat[ edit ] edit ]
It is currently evaluated as vulnerable by the IUCN . It meets the criteria for this assessment because its area of occupancy is likely less than 2,000 km 2 (770 sq mi); its roosting habitat is likely severely fragmented; its cave roosting sites are threatened by human disturbance; and some populations are likely over-harvested for bushmeat .References[ edit ]^ Mickleburgh, S.; Hutson, A.M.; Bergmans, W. & Fahr, J.
