Systematics of the genus eumops chiroptera molossidae

, : Systematics of the genus eumops chiroptera molossidae. Royal Ontario Museum Life Sciences Contributions (110): 1-69

Bats of the genus Eumops range from the southern USA to central Argentina. Operational taxonomic units (OTU) designated within the genus are E. auripendulus, E. bonariensis, E. dabbenei, E. glaucinus glaucinus, E. g. floridanus, E. hansae, E. maurus, E. perotis perotis, E. p. californicus, E. trumbulli and E. underwoodi. A systematic examination of the genus based on morphometric characters included analyses of sexual dimorphism, relationships among all OTU and geographic variation. Males were larger than females in 7 taxa examined for sexual dimorphism. Phenetic relationships among OTU were assessed using cluster analysis and principal component analysis, establishing the 9 spp. Geographic variation was studied in E. auripendulus and E. g. glaucinus, using discriminant functions analysis and in addition using Sum of Squares Simultaneous Testing Procedure analysis in E. glaucinus. These analyses indicate that E. auripendulus and E. glaucinus have each differentiated into 2 sspp.
