Summary:
A previous phylogenetic study of bats of the genus Scotophilus (house bats) showed deep subdivisions and paraphyletic relationships among populations of S. dinganii (four distinct clades) and S. viridis (two distinct clades). According to the genetic species concept, these clades may represent distinct species. Herein, we assess morphological differences of specimens of four clades representing hypothesized  Read more...

Abstract:

A previous phylogenetic study of bats of the genus Scotophilus (house bats) showed deep subdivisions and paraphyletic relationships among populations of S. dinganii (four distinct clades) and S. viridis (two distinct clades). According to the genetic species concept, these clades may represent distinct species. Herein, we assess morphological differences of specimens of four clades representing hypothesized unrecognized species compared to specimens of nominate S. dinganii and S. viridis. Statistically significant morphological differences provided characters for accurate diagnosis of each clade. Therefore we recognize and formally describe four new species of sub-Saharan African Scotophilus (Scotophilus andrewreborii sp. nov., Scotophilus livingstonii sp. nov., Scotophilus ejetai sp. nov., and Scotophilus trujilloi sp. nov.).
