GENUS Scotorepens

Author:Troughton, 1943.
Citation:Furred Animals of Australia, 1st ed., Syndey: Angus and Robertson: 354.
Type Species:Scoteinus orion Troughton, 1937.
Comments:Often included in Nycticeius, but see Kitchener and Caputi (1985) and Volleth and Tidemann (1991). The latter authors suggested that Scotorepens may be more closely related to Vespertilionini than Nycticeiini. Revised by Kichener and Caputi (1985), who provided a key to the species. An undescribed species of Scotorepens may be present in E Australia; see Menkhorst and Knight (2001).
