Electrophoretic resolution of species boundaries in australian microchiroptera iii. the nycticeiini scotorepens and scoteanax chiroptera vespertilionidae



Electrophoretic resolution of species boundaries in australian microchiroptera iii. the nycticeiini scotorepens and scoteanax chiroptera vespertilionidae



Australian Journal of Biological Sciences 40(4): 417-434



Two hundred and sixty two specimens of bats of the tribe Nycticeiini were sampled from throughout Australia, and their tissues subjected to allozyme electrophoresis with a view towards delineating species boundaries. A total of 30 loci were resolved, detailed analysis of which revealed five species.sbd.[Nycticeius] greyii, sanborni, balstoni, orion and rueppellii. The specific boundaries recognized differ from all previous treatments of Australian members, but are supported by the taxonomic arrangement proposed by Kitchener and Caputi (1985). The data support separate generic recognition of ruepellii. Finally, the genetic data reveal a high level of population substructuring in these bats.
