Taxonomic separation of eptesicus chiroptera vespertilionidae in southeastern australia by discriminant analysis and electrophoresis

Taxonomic separation of eptesicus chiroptera vespertilionidae in southeastern australia by discriminant analysis and electrophoresis

Australian Journal of Zoology 29(1): 119-128

Eptesicus from southeastern New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory were used in a combination of multivariate (discriminant) analysis of skeletal dimensions and isozyme electrophoresis of liver, plasma and red cell proteins. Both techniques separated the bats unequivocally into 3 groups. The groups identified by discriminant analysis were the same as those derived by the electrophoretic method and almost certainly belong to distinct biological species, for even when they occur sympatrically there are many fixed gene differences between them. The 3 groups correspond to the species E. vulturnus, E. regulus and E. sagittula. Structural differences between these species and methods of identifying them are discussed.
