SPECIES Myotis muricola

Author:Gray, 1846.
Citation:Cat. Hodgson Coll. Brit. Mus.: 4.
Common Name:Nepalese Whiskered Myotis
Type Locality:Nepal.
Distribution:Afghanistan through N India and Nepal to Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, and New Guinea; possibly the Philippines.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Includes caliginosus, moupinensis, and latirostris; see Findley (1972). Does not include ater or nugax; see Hill (1983) and Hill and Corbet (1992). Includes browni; see Hill and Rozendaal (1989). Includes herrei and patriciae; see Heaney et al. (1987), but also see Corbet and Hill (1992), who listed patriciae as a separate species with some reservations. Reviewed in part by Hill (1983), Kock (1996), Bates and Harrison (1997), Bates et al. (1999), Francis et al. (1999), and Hendrichsen et al. (2001). This complex may include more than one species, see Francis et al. (1999). There is apparently only one species of "muricola type" Myotis in the Philippines, but it is not yet clear if this taxon is ater or muricola (L. Heaney, pers. comm.); the same is probably also true of the Moluccas (K. Helgen, pers. comm.).
