GENUS Nesiotites

Author:Bate, 1945.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., 11, 11: 741.
Type Species:Nesiotites hidalgo Bate, 1945.
Comments:A genus endemic to the Balearic Isls that went extinct during historical times. Vigne (1987) provided a summary of the extinction process. Further information in Vigne and Alcover (1985), and Vigne and Marinval-Vigne (1990, 1991). The morphological separation of Nesiotites from the extinct genus Asoriculus is weak and requires further study (Masini and Sara, 1998).
