The dark tube-nosed fruit bat (Nyctimene celaeno) is a species of bat in the family Pteropodidae. It is endemic to Indonesia.[1] The IUCN classifies this species as synonymous with the broad-striped tube-nosed fruit bat (Nyctimene aello), with priority given to that name.[2] However, as of 2013, the ITIS retains this species as separate.[3]
