TAXONOMIC STATUS OF NYCTIMENE (CHIROPTERA PTEROPOPIDAE) FROM THE BANDA, KAI AND ARU ISLANDS, MALUKU, INDONESIA - IMPLICATIONS FOR BIOGEOGGRAPHY

WA Museum Records and Supplements | Updated 8 years ago

Abstract - Nyctimene is recorded for the first time from the Am and Banda island groups. The Nyctimene from Wokam, Aru island group, is morphologically close to N. albivenler papuanus. That from Kai Besar, Kai Kedl and Banda islands is described as a new subspecies of N. albiventer. The biogeographic relevance of this taxonomic separation is briefly discussed in the context ofthe mammal biogeography of these islands.
