  • There is a high level of morphological similarity among rhinolophid species leading to problematic taxonomic identifications. [...] Key Result All analyses based on molecular, morphological, and sonar characteristics revealed five rhinolophid species including Rhinolophus mehelyi, R. euryale, R. ferrumequinum, R. blasii, and R. hipposideros in Iran. Genetic study revealed one lineage in R. mehelyi, two lineages in each of species R. euryale, R. ferrumequinum, and R. blasii, and three lineages in R. hipposideros…Expand Abstract
