Abstract Harpy fruit bats, two closely related species in the genus Harpyionycteris (Chiroptera: Pteropodidae), exhibit a suite of unique craniodental traits. For this reason, the affinities of these bats have remained unclear, and most systematists have placed them in a group of their own (Harpyionycterinae Miller, 1907). The multicuspidate pattern of the cheek teeth in Harpyionycteris has generated speculation that it may represent an ancestral tribosphenic pattern lost in other pteropodids… 
Phylogenetic Relationships of Harpyionycterine Megabats ( Chiroptera : Pteropodidae )
TLDR
The new phylogeny of Harpionycterinae provides a new framework for interpreting aspects of dental evolution in pteropodids and allows prediction of roosting habits for HarpyionYcteris, whose habits are unknown.
Chapter 6. Phylogenetic Relationships of Harpyionycterine Megabats (Chiroptera: Pteropodidae)
TLDR
The new phylogeny of Harpionycterinae provides a new framework for interpreting aspects of dental evolution in pteropodids and allows prediction of roosting habits for HarpyionYcteris, whose habits are unknown.
Evolutionary relationships of the old world fruit bats (Chiroptera, Pteropodidae): Another star phylogeny?
TLDR
The phylogenetic hypothesis generated here provides a robust framework for a revised cladistic classification of Pteropodidae into subfamilies and tribes and will greatly contribute to the understanding of character evolution and biogeography of pteropODids.
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.
The Evolutionary History of the African Fruit Bats (Chiroptera: Pteropodidae)
TLDR
The results confirm many of the conclusions of previous studies, but challenge the taxonomic status and placement of Epomops dobsonii and Micropteropus, and provide evidence indicating that a new classification at subfamilial and tribal levels is highly desirable.
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.
A New Species of Stripe-faced Fruit Bat (Chiroptera: Pteropodidae: Styloctenium) from the Philippines
TLDR
A new species of Styloctenium from Mindoro Island, Philippines is described, using a variety of dental, cranial, soft tissue, and external characters, which possesses all characters known to be diagnostic of StYLoctenium, but also multicusped lower and upper canines.
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 phylogeny of megachiropteran bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera: Pteropodidae) based on direct optimization analysis of one nuclear and four mitochondrial genes
TLDR
The results indicate that, within Megachiroptera, nectarivory and cave‐dwelling originated several times, but echolocation evolved only once, and that Melonycteris is the sister group of the clade containing all the other genera.
Evolutionary Relationships Among Old World Fruitbats (Megachiroptera: Pteropodidae) Based on 12S rRNA, tRNA Valine, and 16S rRNA Gene Sequences
TLDR
Results of this analysis suggest that other epomophorines and Myonycteris (a cynopterine) are also part of the endemic African clade, and constructed a molecular phylogenetic framework that incorporated clades that were strongly supported by both single-copy DNA hybridization and 12S rRNA-tRNA valine-16S r RNA sequences.
Phylogeny of the Pteropodidae (Mammalia, Chiroptera) Based on Dna Hybridization, With Evidence for Bat Monophyly
TLDR
It appears that anatomical specialisations for nectar- and pollen-feeding evolved (or were lost) several times within Pteropodidae, which supports bat monophyly and the family's Australo-Pacific or south-east Asian origin.

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.
A phylogenetic supertree of the bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera)
We present the first estimate of the phylogenetic relationships among all 916 extant and nine recently extinct species of bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera), a group that accounts for almost one‐quarter of
Evolutionary Relationships of Flying Foxes (Genus Pteropus) in the Philippines Inferred from DNA Sequences of Cytochrome b Gene
TLDR
Six flying fox species, genus Pteropus, were investigated using complete cytochrome b gene sequences (1140 bp) to infer their evolutionary relationships and it was hypothesized that the ancestors of the flying foxes found in the Philippines experienced a subsequent diversification forming two clusters in the topology.
PHYLOGENY OF EXTANT PENGUINS BASED ON INTEGUMENTARY AND BREEDING CHARACTERS
TLDR
A phylogeny of extant penguins (18 forms) was estimated on the basis of 70 integumentary and breeding characters, which recovered monophyly of Sphenisciformes and all the traditional genera.
Evidence on mammalian phylogeny from sequences of exon 28 of the von Willebrand factor gene.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among 27 extant mammalian species were studied using sequences of exon 28 of the gene encoding von Willebrand Factor (vWF), a glycoprotein which functions in blood clotting to provide strong support for the monophyly of both bats and rodents.
Megachiropteran Evolution Studied with 12S rDNA and c-mos DNA Sequences
TLDR
The results confirm that the subfamily Macroglossinae is not monophyletic with the long tongued phenoptype arising at least twice and support the existence of a major clade including a monophyleteic endemic African component and biogeographically neighboring genera such as Rousettus and Eonycteris.
