 Comments
       
  Comment: CITES: Appendix I per 2013 Checklist of CITES species: Index of CITES species published with amendments to the Appendices and changes in standard scientific nomenclature following the 16th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (Bangkok, 2013). For current status see CITES.org  
    Status: CITES - Appendix II. IUCN/SSC Action Plan (1992) - Endangered: Limited Distribution as P. mariannus loochoensis. IUCN 2003 - Extinct  
    Comments: mariannus species group. Often included in mariannus, but see Corbet and Hill (1980) and Yoshiyuki (1989). Reviewed by Yoshiyuki (1989). Flannery (1995b) treated loochoensis as a subspecies of mariannus without comment  
    The status of Pteropus loochoensis Gray, 1870 is uncertain; it is only known from two species collected in the 19th century and may be extinct (Wilson and Mittermeier, 2019)
