Bourret’s horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus paradoxolophus) is a species of horseshoe bat native to Southeast Asia. The name “paradoxolophus” is derived from the Greek words paradoxos, meaning “contrary to expectation”, and lophos, meaning “crest”. This name refers to the bat’s difference in nose-leaf morphology compared to other Rhinolophus species. There are no recognised subspecies.
