A team of international network of researchers describes a new species of woolly horseshoe bat from Southeast Asia (Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand). The new species is described from specimens in museums world-wide including a 32 years old spirit specimen. The study (led by SEABCRU
They have typical Pipistrellus appearance but are characterized by the thickened pads at the base of thumbs. They roost in bamboo stalks but are not the flat-headed Tylonycteris of Southeast Asia nor the funnel-eared Kerivoula of Taiwan. The genus Glischropus is a group of small vespe
A team of international scientists, led by two SEABCRU members, Dr. Pipat Soisook (Prince of Songkla University, Thailand) and Dr. Paul Bates (Harrison Institute, UK), discovered a new genus and species of false vampire. The new bat, namely Eudiscoderma thongareeae, is the sixth membe
The Intermediate Horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus affinis) is one of the most common cave species using constant frequency (CF) calls in Southeast Asia. In the past, variations of morphology and echolocation calls within the species have been observed among different geographic populations.
The insectivorous Woolly bats (Genus Kerivoula) are only found in the Old World tropics, including Southeast Asia. Species of the genus are characterized by small body size (2.5-13 gram), funnel-shaped ears, very high-pitched echolocation, and their fidelity to forests. Despite the gr
A long awaited description has finally been done by T. Görföl and his colleagues – a new species of Hypsugo was already mentioned as Hypsugo sp.A in their SE Asian bat barcoding study by Francis et al. in 2010. The species can be readily distinguished from all other SE Asian congene
