Singapore whiskered bat
The Singapore whiskered bat is or was a possible species of vesper bat endemic to Singapore. No specimens have been found since its original scientific description in 1840 by Dutch zoologist Coenraad Temminck. Modern analysis of the type specimen found it to have skull fragments from another species and the skin to be in too poor a condition to confirm as distinct species.
