Reproduction in female Chalinolobus morio (Gray) (Vespertilionidae) in south-western Australia



Reproduction in female Chalinolobus morio (Gray) (Vespertilionidae) in south-western Australia



Australian Journal of Zoology, 293: 305-320



The reproductive cycle of C. morio is outlined from examination of reproductive organs in situ and from histological techniques on Museum specimens collected in southwestern Australia. Changes in ovaries, endometria (and glands), epithelia lining tracts and Bartholin's glands are described. C. morio is monoesterus. It copulates in autumn and stores sperm in oviducts and uterine glands until ovulation in winter. Both ovaries are functional. Trans-uterine migration of the developing zygote is recorded. It normally gives birth to a single young, although occasionally to twins, between mid-Sept. and mid-Nov. In the case of twins both uterine horns are gravid; otherwise only the right horn is gravid.
