|Trujillo’s house bat|
Brooks & Bickham, 2014
It was described as a new species in 2014. The holotype had been collected in 1985 in Kwale County, Kenya. The eponym for the species name "trujilloi" is Robert Trujillo. Trujillo's work on the molecular systematics of Scotophilus bats "paved the way" for the description of this species and three others.
Trujillo's house bat has reddish-mahogany fur on its back and grayish-orange fur on its belly. Its forearm length ranges from 43.8–46.2 mm (1.72–1.82 in).
As of 2017, it is evaluated as a least-concern species by the IUCN. Its range includes at least one protected area: Shimba Hills National Reserve. It is possibly quite tolerant of human-mediated landscape disturbance. It is threatened by the intentional destruction of its roosts.
