A New Species of Emballonura ( Chiroptera : Emballonuridae ) from the Dry Regions of Madagascar

  title={A New Species of Emballonura ( Chiroptera : Emballonuridae ) from the Dry Regions of Madagascar},
  author={Steve Goodman and S G Cardiff and Julie Ranivo and Amy L Russell and Anne D. Yoder},
We describe a new species of bat in the genus Emballonura (Chiroptera: Emballonuridae), E. tiavato, from the dry forest regions of Madagascar. This species is distinguished from the only other member of this genus found on the island, E. atrata, and extralimital species based on a variety of external and cranial characteristics. Details of the distribution, phylogeny, and natural history of the two species of Malagasy Emballonura are presented.
