Abstract For the past century, the genus Styloctenium Matschie has been known to contain a single species restricted to Sulawesi and the nearby Togian Islands. Styloctenium has a unique pelage, characterized by white supraocular spots and a white rostral stripe on an otherwise mostly orange pelage. Several additional features characterize the genus, including the loss of i1 and m3, rudimentary state of P1, and marked reduction of the molar cusps. The genus has often been considered closely… 
A New Species of Desmalopex (Pteropodidae) from the Philippines, with a Phylogenetic Analysis of the Pteropodini
TLDR
The new species shares several probable morphological synapomorphies with Desmalopex leucopterus, including features of the pelage, patagia, dentition, and cranium, suggesting that the 2 species are closely related.
The systematic position of Pteropus leucopterus and its bearing on the monophyly and relationships of Pteropus (Chiroptera: Pteropodidae)
TLDR
Separate and combined parsimony and maximum likelihood analyses recovered a clade containing Acerodon as sister to all Pteropus species to the exclusion of the Philippine endemic taxon ‘P. leucopterus’, rendering Pteropoulos paraphyletic.
Nyctalus plancyi and Falsistrellus petersi (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) from Northern Luzon, Philippines: Ecology, Phylogeny, and Biogeographic Implications
TLDR
Nyctalus plancyi is the first mammal species documented to have colonized the main, oceanic body of the Philippines from the north (i.e., Taiwan or mainland China), rather than from the south (Borneo, Sulawesi, or New Guinea).
A contribution to the ectoparasite fauna of bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera) in Mindoro Island, Philippines: I. Blood sucking Diptera (Nycteribiidae, Streblidae) and Siphonaptera (Ischnopsyllidae)
TLDR
Eighty-three individuals of ectoparasitic insects representing seven species of Nyc-teribiidae and fve species of Streblidae (both Diptera, and one species of Ischnopsyllidae) were recorded from 11 bat species captured in Naujan Lake National Park, Mindoro Oriental Province, Philippines.
Twentieth century occurrence of the Long-Beaked Echidna Zaglossus bruijnii in the Kimberley region of Australia
TLDR
It is concluded that, like Tachyglossus, Zaglossus is part of the modern fauna of the Kimberley region of Western Australia, where it apparently survived as a rare element into the twentieth century, and may still survive.
A Recent Bat Survey Reveals Bukit Barisan Selatan Landscape as a Chiropteran Diversity Hotspot in Sumatra
TLDR
With 60 species, this study considers Bukit Barisan Selatan Landscape to be a Southeast Asian bat diversity hotspot and of critical importance in maintaining bat diversity in Sumatra.
Species diversity of fruit bats in Bega Watershed, Prosperidad, Agusan del sur, Philippines
TLDR
The presence of endemic and vulnerable species suggests that Bega watershed is an area of conservation importance and there is an increasing trend of species richness from sampling sites 1 to 3.
THE FRUIT BATS (MEGACHIROPTERA, PTEROPODIDAE) FROM BAWAKARAENG MOUNTAIN, SOUTH SULAWESI
A study of fruit bats (Pteropodidae) was conducted in the mountain region of Bawakaraeng, Gowa and Sinjai, South Sulawesi from September to December 2013. This study aims to determine the fruit bats
Records of shrews from Panay and Palawan, Philippines, with the description of two new species of Crocidura (Mammalia: Soricidae)
Two new species of shrews are described from the Philippines; Crocidura panayensis sp. nov. from primary montane forest on Panay, and C. batakorum sp. nov. from secondary lowland forest on Pa- lawan.
Bat Systematics in the Light of Unconstrained Analyses of a Comprehensive Molecular Supermatrix
TLDR
A large-scale phylogeny of bats based on unconstrained searches for a data matrix of 804 non-chimeric, taxonomically updated bat terminals yielded a highly resolved, variously supported phylogeny that recovered the majority of currently recognized clades at all levels of the chiropteran tree.

A New Species of Forest Mouse, Genus Apomys (Mammalia: Rodentia: Muridae), from Camiguin Island, Philippines
TLDR
A previously unknown species of Philippine forest mouse of the endemic Philippine genus Apomys is named and described, one of two species of mammals now known to be endemic to Camiguin, the other being Bullimus gamay.
A new species of the shrew‐mouse, Archboldomys (Rodentia: Muridae: Murinae), from the Philippines

A taxonomic review of the genus Pteralopex (Chiroptera: Pteropodidae), the monkey-faced bats of the south-western Pacific.
TLDR
A new species is described from New Georgia and Vangunu Islands, Solomon Islands, which resembles P. pulchra but differs in dental, cranial and pelage characters and an IUCN threat category of ‘Critically Endangered’ is proposed.
REVIEW OF BULLIMUS (MURIDAE: MURINAE) AND DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES FROM CAMIGUIN ISLAND, PHILIPPINES
TLDR
The discovery of a species endemic to Camiguin reflects the fact that this small island is close enough to Mindanao to have received some nonvolant mammals by overwater dispersal, but its isolation has been sufficient to promote speciation.
A review of the genera Crunomys and Archboldomys (Rodentia: Muridae: Murinae) : with descriptions of two new species from the Philippines / Eric A. Rickart ... [et al.].
TLDR
Members of both genera Crunomys and Archboldomys are relatively small, ground-dwelling rodents that apparently are diurnal and insectivorous and have a broad distribution that includes much of the Philippines as well as Sulawesi.
DESCRIPTIONS OF TWO NEW SPECIES OF RHYNCHOMYS THOMAS (RODENTIA: MURIDAE: MURINAE) FROM LUZON ISLAND, PHILIPPINES
TLDR
The discovery of locally endemic species of Rhynchomys both confirms the existence of multiple centers of endemism on Luzon and underscores the need to establish and maintain additional protected areas on the island.
Systematics of the Pacific monkey-faced bats ( Chiroptera : Pteropodidae ) , with a new species of Pteralopex and a new Fijian genus
The fruit-bat genus Pteralopex comprises the monkey-faced bats, a group of six endangered species found only in old-growth forests on certain islands in the south-west Pacific (the Solomon Islands
REVIEW OF THE PHILIPPINE GENERA CHROTOMYS AND CELAENOMYS (MURINAE) AND DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES
TLDR
Analysis of variation within the murine genera Celaenomys and Chrotomys supports the recognition of 4 named species occurring on the large islands of Luzon and Mindoro, as well as the description of a 5th species from Sibuyan, a small island in the central Philippines that has remained isolated from the other islands by deep water channels.

TLDR
General remarks and conclusions are presented on the supraspecific taxonomy of the Megachiroptera and a classification is proposed which includes the raise to subfamily rank of the Rousettinee and Epomophorinae and the recognition of the new tribes Scotonycterini and Plerotini.
Phylogenetic Relationships of the Enigmatic Harpy Fruit Bat, Harpyionycteris (Mammalia: Chiroptera: Pteropodidae)
TLDR
The results strongly reject the tribosphenic hypothesis advanced by some authors and suggest that this group nests deeply inside Pteropodidae but it is not closely related to any particular suprageneric clade.
