  author={Sergey V. Kruskop and Katerina Tsytsulina},
Un tres petit Myotis du groupe daubentoni a ete decouvert dans les contreforts de la province de Quan Binh au Vietnam. Treize exemplaires ont ete compares aux autres Myotis de meme groupe qui habitent en Europe et Asie. La morphologie generale et celle du crâne permettent de presenter la forme vietnamienne comme une espece nouvelle. Parmi les Myotis le aouveau taxon est plus proche de l'espece himalayienne M. csorbai Topal, 1997.

A New Mouse-Eared Bat (Mammalia: Chiroptera, Vespertilionidae) from South China
A small Myotis species belonging to the Myotis siligorensis group was found in four caves in Yunnan province, South China. Twenty specimens of this bat were compared with other East Asian Myotis

Subspecific structure of Myotis daubentonii (Chiroptera, Vespertilionidae) and composition of the "daubentonii" species group
On the whole, the "daubentonii" species group includes at least seven Eurasian species (including the newly described Vietnamese M. annamiticus), plus four forms of uncertain taxonomic position, amongst which small montane forms with low rostrum and deep fronto-nasal flexure may be separated into their own subgroup or group, "longipes".
Description of a New Genus and Species of Rodent (Murinae, Muridae, Rodentia) from the Tower Karst Region of Northeastern Vietnam
Body size and build of the new rat are similar to the Thai Leopoldamys neilli, but other cranial traits coupled with molar occlusal patterns resemble morphology in species of the Indomalayan Niviventer, Chiromyscus, and Saxatilomys.
Molecular phylogeny and morphological revision of Myotis bats (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) from Taiwan and adjacent China.
These molecular reconstructions showed that the Myotinae from Taiwan are phylogenetically diverse and are issued from several independent clades, as each of the eight Taiwanese taxa proved to be reciprocally monophyletic.
Geographical Variation of Rhinolophus affinis (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae) in the Sundaic Subregion of Southeast Asia, including the Malay Peninsula, Borneo and Sumatra
Rhinolophus affinis sensu lato is a widespread bat species in South and Southeast Asia which shows considerable geographical variation in its morphology, echolocation call frequencies and genetics.
Plasticity in echolocation calls of Myotis macrodactylus (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae): implications for acoustic identification
This work studied the echolocation behaviors of an ecologically poorly known bat species, Myotis macrodactylus, while they were commuting in three types of habitats differing significantly in the amount of background clutter, as well as searching for prey above the water surface in a river.
Bemerkungen zu Kleinsäugern der vietnamesischen Nationalparke Cuc Phuong und Phong Nha-Ke Bang und des Naturschutzgebietes Ke Go
On the basis of literature research, observations and dead fi nds some small mammals of the Cuc Phuong and Phong Nha-Ke Bang Natural Parks and the Ke Go Nature Reserve are considered in comparison.
Neotropical Bats: Estimating Species Diversity with DNA Barcodes
This study surveys current and potential species diversity using DNA barcodes with a collection of more than 9000 individuals from 163 species of Neotropical bats, one of the largest surveys to employ this strategy on any animal group and is certainly the largest to date for land vertebrates.
Diagnosable versus Distinct: Evaluating Species Limits in Birds
Abstract I review new species of birds described from 1993 to 2002, comparing the methods used to diagnose (identify) new bird species with those used for other classes of vertebrates. Birds are

A review of the mouse-eared bats (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae: Myotis) from Vietnam with significant new records
Eight species of mouse-eared bat (Myotis) have recently been collected in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and diagnostic characters are reviewed for these and six further species of Myotis that have been previously recorded from the country.
Phenetic relationships among bats of the genus Myotis
A numerical taxonomic analysis of the species of the chiropteran genus Myotis revealed the existence of three major phenetic groupings, which may correspond to three feeding-foraging modalities.
The Mammals of the Indomalayan Region: A Systematic Review
This chapter discusses the distribution and habits of marsupials in the Northern Hemisphere, and some examples are given of animals from South America, Asia, and Australia.
Geographic Variation and Taxonomy of Daubenton's Bat, Myotis daubentoni in Europe
The results suggest that both climate (natural selection) and geographic factors (barriers to gene flow) contributed to differentiation in M. daubentoni, and it is proposed that M. d.
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.
