  The Old World insectivorous bat genus Rhinolophus is highly speciose. Over the last 15 years, the number of its recognized species has grown from 77 to , but knowledge of their interrelationships has not kept pace. Species limits and phylogenetic relationships of this morphologically conservative group remain problematic due both to poor sampling across the Afrotropics and to Cited by: 3. Molecular Systematics of Bats of the Genus Myotis (Vespertilionidae) Suggests Deterministic Ecomorphological Convergences Manuel Ruedi* and Frieder Mayer† *NaturalHistoryMuseum,,Geneva6,Switzerland;and†Institutfu¨rZoologieII, Universita¨tErlangen,Erlangen,Germany Received Febru ; revised "The systematics of African members of the genus Scotophilus has been confused and at times controversial. Apart from size and pelage color, they do not show many non-mensural differences. Multivariate statistical analyses are used with seven. The genus Nyctinomops comprises 4 species of bats in the free-tailed family Molossidae: Nyctinomops macrotis, Nyctinomops femorosaccus, Nyctinomops aurispinosus, and Nyctinomops laticaudatus.

The subgenus Mesocarabus Thomson, is a western Palaearctic group that currently includes five species: four of them inhabiting western Europe (Carabus lusitanicus Fabricius, , Carabus problematicus Herbst, , Carabus dufourii Dejean & Boisduval, , and Carabus macrocephalus Dejean, ) and one found in the Rif Mountains in northern Morocco Cited by: Conventional and G- banded karyotypes are reported for three species of molossid bats from india (Chaerephon plicatus) and Senegal (Ch. pumilus, Mops condylurus). The chromosome diploid number 2n = 48 and the number of chromosomal arms FN= 54 were.

  Two molossid sequences, Tadarida brasiliensis (JF) and Tadarida teniotis (HM), This species is named after Donovan Reginald Rosevear who made a significant contribution to West African bat research in the 20 th century, culminating in his book ‘The bats of West Africa’ (Rosevear, ).Cited by: The dental formula of Neoplatymops is shared with many bats now classified under the genus Tadarida, but other characteristics including the confor- mation of the palate, the antorbital region of the skull, and the ears, as well as the development of the gular gland and wart-like granulations on the forearm, all indicate a specialization. This title, published with support from the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI), includes chapters on the evolution, biogeography, ecology and echolocation of bats, and provides accounts for the bat species known to occur in southern and central Africa.5/5(1).   Tenuous descriptions of many species and subspecies of mastiff bats make the taxonomy of MolossusE. Geoffroy, confusing and unstable. Molossus is one of the most diverse genera of free tailed bats in the pantropical family Molossidae Gervais, Given their impressive variation due to geography, sex, and ontogeny, and incomplete knowledge about species boundaries, Cited by: 2.
