Khin Swe Oo, Hsu Lae Win, Paul JJ Bates, Malcolm Pearch
Roosting colonias de  Pteropus  spp. en Myeik y Nyaung-zin en Tanintharyi de Myanmar fueron encuestados entre marzo y octubre de 2016. Zorros voladores de 12 sitios de descanso en la ciudad de Myeik se considera que representa el taxón  Pteropus Geminorum hypomelanus  basado en la colección de un solo ejemplar, que es el primer registro del taxón desde una ubicación continental. Más información se obtuvo de la población local acerca de la ecología y la migración estacional de las colonias de zorros voladores en la localidad costera de Shaw-Taw-Maw y en la pequeña isla de La-BYU. Se presentan datos sobre las especies de árboles gallinero seleccionados por  Pteropus colonias y amenazas locales a los murciélagos y su hábitat.
Palabras clave: Ecología; Myanmar; Pteropus Geminorum hypomelanus.
