The Fijian monkey-faced bat (Mirimiri acrodonta) is a megabat endemic to Fiji. It was discovered in old-growth cloud forest on Des Vœux Peak, the second highest mountain peak (1,195 m) on the island of Taveuni by William and Ruth Beckon in 1976, and is Fiji's only endemic mammal. It is listed as a critically endangered species due to habitat loss. It has recently been transferred from Pteralopex to its own monotypic genus Mirimiri.
