A new species of Emballonura (Chiroptera: Emballonuridae) from the dry regions of madagascar


Journal Article

We describe a new species of bat in the genus Emballonura (Chiroptera: Emballonuridae), E. tiavato, from the dry forest regions of Madagascar. This species is distinguished from the only other member of this genus found on the island, E. atrata, and extralimital species based on a variety of external and cranial characteristics. Details of the distribution, phylogeny, and natural history of the two species of Malagasy Emballonura are presented. Copyright © American Museum of Natural History 2006.
