  • Abstract We examined phylogenetic and phylogeographic relationships (cyt b, control region, Rag2) among members of the Chaerephon pumilus species complex from islands in the western Indian Ocean, and eastern and southeastern Africa. The sampling also includes material from the topotype of C. naivashae, holotypes of C. elphicki and C. langi, and syntypes of C. limbatus, all considered junior synonyms of C. pumilus. We found that the nominate C. pumilus sensu stricto (s.s.) from Massawa, Eritrea… CONTINUE READING
