Electrophoretic resolution of species boundaries in australian microchiroptera iv. the molossidae chiroptera



Electrophoretic resolution of species boundaries in australian microchiroptera iv. the molossidae chiroptera



Australian Journal of Biological Sciences 41(3): 315-326



Allozyme electrophoresis of 35 loci in 156 specimens of Australian bats belonging to the Molossidae was used to help elucidate the species-level taxonomy of the group in Australia. The electrophoretic data support the current species-level taxonomy of Tadarida australis and Chaerephon jobensis. However, for specimens currently allocated to the genus Mormopterus, the electrophoretic data fail to support any previous species-level account. On the electrophoretic data, a minimum of five species of the genus Mormopterus occur in Australia. A single specimen of a sixth species, whose generic affinities are undetermined, was also found.
