ABSTRACT Six species of small vespertilionid bat were recently collected in Madagascar. Neoromicia matroka (included by some in Eptesicus) and N. malagasyensis were already recorded from the island. Pipistrellus hesperidus was known but under a different name, P. kuhlii. Neoromicia melckorum is a new species record for the island. Hypsugo anchietae represents a new species and genus record. The last taxon is a previously undescribed species of Pipistrellus, which shows affinities to three South… 

High diversity of pipistrelloid bats (Vespertilionidae: Hypsugo, Neoromicia, and Pipistrellus) in a West African rainforest with the description of a new species

The high species richness of pipistrelloid bats on Mount Nimba may be associated with the transition zone from lowland rainforest to moist savannah, a biodiversity hotspot in the Upper Guinean rainforest zone.

A revision of pipistrelle-like bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) in East Africa with the description of new genera and species

This study attempts to resolve the systematic relationships among the pipistrelle-like bats of sub-Saharan Africa and Madagascar and provide a more stable framework for future systematic efforts, and erects two new genera, one comprising a group of mostly forest-associated species and the other for the genetically and morphologically unique banana bat.

An integrative approach to characterize Malagasy bats of the subfamily Vespertilioninae Gray, 1821, with the description of a new species of Hypsugo

This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of the EMMARM, which aims to provide real-time information about the response of the immune system to E. coli in the context of Reunion.

New Myzopodidae (Chiroptera) from the Late Paleogene of Egypt: Emended Family Diagnosis and Biogeographic Origins of Noctilionoidea

The new myzopodids, along with previously described bats from the Fayum and Australia, suggest that eastern Gondwana played a critical role in the origin and diversification of several bats clades notably including the superfamily Noctilionoidea, which live in the Neotropics today.

Morphological and molecular assessment of the specific status of Mops midas (Chiroptera: Molossidae) from Madagascar and Africa

External measurements and soft-part anatomy, as well as cranial and dental measurements and structure, revealed few differences between the African and Malagasy populations, and it is proposed that no subspecific variation should be recognized in M. midas.

A synthesis of African and western Indian Ocean Island mammal taxa (class: Mammalia) described between 1988 and 2008: An update to Allen (1939) and Ansell (1989)

The taxonomic group in which the largest number of new taxa has been described is the Primates, with two new genera, 47 new species and 11 new subspecies, while geographically the biggest increase in new species descriptions has been on the island of Madagascar, accounting for roughly half of all new species described in the past 20 years.

Integrative taxonomic analysis of new collections from the central Angolan highlands resolves the taxonomy of African pipistrelloid bats on a continental scale

The phylogeny supports a recently proposed generic classification of African pipistrelle-like bats, and identifies shallow to deep genetic divergence between different African regions in other recognized pipistrelloid species, such as conspecificity between the long-eared species Laephotis angolensis from Angola and Laepotis botswanae.

Paraplangia sinespeculo, a new genus and species of bush-cricket, with notes on its biology and a key to the genera of Phaneropterinae (Orthoptera: Tettigonioidea) from Madagascar

A new genus and species of bush-cricket reared from field-collected eggs is described, which belongs to Phaneropterinae and shares diagnostic characteristics with members of the tribe Amblycoryphini and its African subtribe Plangiina stat.

Population Genetic Analysis of Myzopoda (Chiroptera: Myzopodidae) in Madagascar

This work used a combination of phylogenetic, coalescent, and population genetic analyses to characterize the speciation history of Myzopoda and to clarify current and former patterns of gene flow within and between MyZopoda.

Coexistence of morphologically similar bats (Vespertilionidae) on Madagascar: stable isotopes reveal fine-grained niche differentiation among cryptic species

Intraspecific variation in faecal and hair stable isotopes did not indicate that seasonal migration might relax competition and thereby facilitate the local co-occurrence of sympatric taxa.



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

A new species of bat in the genus Emballonura, E. tiavato, from the dry forest regions of Madagascar is described, distinguished from the only other member of this genus found on the island based on a variety of external and cranial characteristics.

A review of the genera Myotis, Ia, Pipistrellus, Hypsugo, and Arielulus (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) from Myanmar (Burma), including three species new to the country

A brief review of all 24 species of Myotis, Ia, Pipistrellus, Hypsugo, and Arielulus currently listed for Myanmar and three of these are removed from the faunal list for lack of supporting data or because of previous misidentifications.

Karyotype comparison and phylogenetic relationships of Pipistrellus-like bats (Vespertilionidae; Chiroptera; Mammalia)

According to the results, the species Pipistrellus (Neoromicia) capensis belongs to the Vespertilionini and not to the Pipistrelini, and it is proposed to elevate the subgenus NeoromicIA to generic rank.

Systematic Implications of Chromosome Gtg-Band and Bacula Morphology for Southern African Eptesicus and Pipistrellus and Several Other Species of Vespertilioninae (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae)

Phylogenetic analyses of bacular and chromosomal GTG-band characters verify the suggestion that EPTesicus hottentotus is the only true Eptesicus Rafinesque, 1820 and confirm the affiliation of all of them to the genus Neoromicia.

The distribution and conservation of bats in the dry regions of Madagascar

We carried out extensive field surveys in the dry forest portions of Madagascar to document the species of bats occurring in these regions. These data combined with information in the literature and

Karyotypic data and attendant systematic implications for the bats of southern Africa

It is concluded that the taxon Cistugo (currently recognised as a subgenus oiMyotis) should be afforded full generic rank and hypothesise that the karyotypes of the two species - M. (C.) seabrai and M.(C.) lesueuri) are probably ancestral for all vespertilionids.

Mammal Species of the World: A Taxonomic and Geographic Reference

The third edition of Wilson and Reeder's Mammal Species of the World includes detailed information on nomenclature and, for the first time, common names.

Microchiropteran bats : global status survey and conservation action plan

The first comprehensive review to identify the conservation priorities for the 834 species of Microchiroptera is offered, which aims to be used as a basis for the development of more local or regional action plans, or actions for particular groups of bat species.

Birds of the Indian Subcontinent

The Indian subcontinent is species-rich partly because of its wide altitudinal range extending from sea level up to the summit of the Himalayas, the world’s highest mountains, and its geographical position in a region of overlap between three biogeographic provinces – the Indo-malayan (South and South-East Asia), Palearctic (Europe and Northern Asia), and Afro-tropical (Africa) realms.
