Comments:Subgenus Eptesicus. Revised by Gaisler (1970), who noted that shiraziensis may be synonymous with turcomanicus. Includes sodalis; see Gaisler (1970) and Corbet (1978c). Includes horikawai; see Jones (1975). See additional comments under fuscus and platyops. Reviewed in part by Harrison and Bates (1991), Bates and Harrison (1997), Horácek et al. (2000), and Baagĝe (2001c).
