Taphozous kapalgensis was previously known from just nine records. In a recent survey we collected three individuals and identified two more from specimens held by the Northern Territory Museum. Two reference calls were also recorded for this species using the Anabat system. A review of fauna survey data containing an archive of 24400 digital Anabat call files recorded at 742 sites across the northern half of the Northern Territory identified 162 files from nine sites that matched the T. kapalgensis reference calls. We recommend, based on the information presented here, that T. kapalgensis be regarded as Near Threatened.
