Abstract: A bat survey on Waigeo Island was conducted from May to June 2007 as a part of the Widya Nusantara Expedition. A total of 15 species of bats comprising ten Megachiropterans and five Microchiropterans were recorded. Five species are new records for Waigeo Island, i.e. Pteropus conspicillatus, Dobsonia cf. minor, Nyctimene cf. cyclotis, Paranyctimene raptor and Hipposideros papua. Based on this survey and previous published records, 24 species of bats are found on Waigeo Island. The record of the montane species N. cf. cyclotis in a lowland area gives new information relating to its ecology and systematics.
