Creagh's Horseshoe Bat

Thanks to Afribats, John Martin, Gareth Jones, Steve Rossiter and Matt Struebig for their help in identifying these as Rhinolophus creaghi (and not Wrinkle-lipped Freetail Bats as originally captioned).

Note that in early editions of the Mammals of Borneo some of the bat plates are opposite the wrong captions. Thus (in the 1994 reprint at least) the captions for plate 10, Horseshoe bats, Rhinolophus, are opposite illustrations for plate 8 while plate 10 (which actually illustrates the Rhinolophus bats) is opposite the text/captions for Plate 12 Roundleaf bats etc. Several others are wrong too!
