"Non-Moluccan populations apparently represent an undescribed subspecies (K. Helgen pers. comm.). The species is found in Indonesia, in northern Molucca Islands, Halmahera Island, Togian Islands, Sangihe Islands, Talaud Islands, Penang, and Sulawesi and other Indonesian islands (Muno, Buton, Pelang, Kabaena, Mangole, Sanana, Halmahera, Siau, Sangihe, Karekelang, and also Hoga Island).
It is commonly found in gardens and disturbed forest (Flannery 1995). It is not dependent on water. It roosts in caves, trees, and rock crevices. This species lives in large colonies. Births probably take place in December (Flannery 1995)."
