Reproduction and the female productive cycle of Nyctophilus geoffroyi and and N. major (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) from South-western Australia



Reproduction and the female productive cycle of Nyctophilus geoffroyi and and N. major (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) from South-western Australia



Australian Journal of Zoology 45(5): 489-504



The reproductive cycles of female Nyctophilus geoffroyi and N. major from southwestern Australia are described from capture records and histological examination of tissue from fixed specimens. The sequence of reproductive events for both species was similar to that described for other vespertilionid bats from southwestern Australia. Mating commenced between March and May. Sperm were stored in the caudal isthmus of the oviduct and in endometrial glands near the utero-tubal junction.
