On page 14, Plate 7 is captioned: "A free-tailed bat in nearby Kahf Hama."  Dr. Iyad Nader, Director of the King Khaled Wildlife Research Centre in Saudi Arabi, (in litt.) notes: "The bat is a mouse-tailed bat, and most likely is the Muscat mouse-tailed bat (Rhinopoma muscatellum), and not a free-tailed bat."  (Noted: Tribulus 13.2)
