|Lesser tube-nosed bat range|
Populations are found within Manusela National Park on Seram island. The habitat has an area of less than 2,000 km².
Its habitats are decreasing due to logging, and so since 1996 it has been listed on the IUCN Red List as a Vulnerable species. At least though they apparently adjust well to the human environment, and are not hunted by the indigenous population because of the bat's small size.
