Abstract

by J. E. HILL Department of Zoology British Museum (Natural History) The subgeneric classification of the molossid genus Tadarida is discussed, and four subgenera considered valid in the Indo-Australian region are defined and keyed. The names Philippinopterus Taylor, Austronomus Troughton and Micronomus Troughton are reduced to synonymy. The Indo-Australian species and subspecies of Tadarida are reviewed and allocated to subgenera. Wherever possible, they have been briefly defined with notes based on specimens from the collections of the British Museum (Natural History). Indo-Australian bats of the genus Tadarida, with some exceptions, are relatively little known, and some forms are rare in collections. There exists no recent review of their characters and affinities. The following notes are based on the collections of the British Museum (Natural History) and while their object is to review the species found in the area bounded by India, Burma, the Philippine Islands, the Solomon Islands and Australia, some African and American species have been examined to clarify relationships within the genus. No attempt has been made to review the genus as a whole. Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1951) provide a complete generic synonymy. The following synonymy includes only those names with genotypes from or occurring within
