Commonly they are known as Wahlberg epauletted fruit bats. Species were rarely trapped but found both in rehabilitated and natural vegetation(unmined) areas. The species roosts in the well-lit open trees, and dense forest and rarely roosts in caves.
Geographically located in central, east and southern Africa. From the savannah to rainforests, habitats level up to 2000m above sea level. The population is stable and the population has no major threat but habitat loss reduces habitat quality for roosting and foraging. There are no direct conservation measures needed for the species. But more research area needed on the recent population trend.
