The Solomons flying fox (Pteropus rayneri) is a species of flying fox in the family Pteropodidae. It is endemic to the Solomon Islands archipelago. The population abundance has been marked by periodic die-offs of generally unknown cause, including a major die-off in the 1980s. Hunting may be a significant threat to the population.[1]
