*  PLOS ONE: Genetic Diversity of Neotropical Myotis (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) with an Emphasis on South American Species
Background Cryptic morphological variation in the Chiropteran genus Myotis limits the understanding of species boundaries and species richness within the genus. Several authors have suggested that it is likely there are unrecognized species-level lineages of Myotis in the Neotropics. This study provides an assessment of the diversity in New World Myotis by analyzing cytochrome-b gene variation from an expansive sample ranging throughout North, Central, and South America. We provide baseline genetic data for researchers investigating phylogeographic and phylogenetic patterns of Myotis in these regions, with an emphasis on South America. Methodology and Principal Findings Cytochrome-b sequences were generated and phylogenetically analyzed from 215 specimens, providing DNA sequence data for the most species of New World Myotis to date. Based on genetic data in our sample, and on comparisons with available DNA sequence data from GenBank, we estimate the number of species-level genetic lineages in South

*  Macroglossinae (Chiroptera) - Wikipedia
The megabat subfamily Macroglossinae is a small group comprising only four genera. The name "Macroglossinae" also happens to be preoccupied by a subfamily within the moth family Sphingidae, a violation of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature which the taxonomic community has yet to rectify by selecting a new name for the bat lineage.[citation needed] Species within this subfamily are: Subfamily Macroglossinae Genus Macroglossus - long-tongued fruit bats Long-tongued nectar bat, Macroglossus minimus Long-tongued fruit bat, Macroglossus sobrinus Genus Melonycteris Fardoulis' blossom bat, Melonycteris fardoulisi Black-bellied fruit bat, Melonycteris melanops Woodford's fruit bat, Melonycteris woodfordi Genus Notopteris - long-tailed fruit bats Long-tailed fruit bat, Notopteris macdonaldi (Fiji and Vanuatu) New Caledonia blossom bat, Notopteris neocaledonica (New Caledonia) Genus Syconycteris - blossom bats Common blossom bat, Syconycteris australis Halmahera blossom bat, Syconycteris ...

*  Phylogenetic Reconstruction by Cross-Species Chromosome Painting and G-Banding in Four Species of Phyllostomini Tribe ...
The subfamily Phyllostominae comprises taxa with a variety of feeding strategies. From the cytogenetic point of view, Phyllostominae shows different rates of chromosomal evolution between genera, with Phyllostomus hastatus probably retaining the ancestral karyotype for the subfamily. Since chromosomal rearrangements occur rarely in the genome and have great value as phylogenetic markers and in taxonomic characterization, we analyzed three species: Lophostoma silvicola (LSI), Phyllostomus discolor (PDI) and Tonatia saurophila (TSA), representing the tribe Phyllostomini, collected in the Amazon region, by classic and molecular cytogenetic techniques in order to reconstruct the phylogenetic relationships within this tribe. LSA has a karyotype of 2n=34 and FN=60, PDI has 2n=32 and FN=60 and TSA has 2n=16 and FN=20. Comparative analysis using G-banding and chromosome painting show that the karyotypic complement of TSA is highly rearranged relative to LSI and PHA, while LSI, PHA and PDI have similar
