Pipistrellus anthonyi (Tate, 1942)

Hypsugo anthonyi, also known as Anthony's pipistrelle, is a species of vesper bat. It is known from a single specimen, collected at Changyinku, Burma, at 7000 ft (2134 m) altitude. Its taxonomic status is doubtful; while currently classified in Hypsugo and previously in Pipistrellus, it may also belong to Nyctalus or Philetor.[2] The IUCN Red List lists the species as "Data Deficient" because so little is known about it.[1]
