Vespadelus

Vespadelus is a genus of bats in the family Vespertilionidae.

The genus name was first published by Ellis Le Geyt Troughton and Tom Iredale in 1934, but without an adequate description; the type was cited as Scotophilus pumilus Gray, 1841. The 1934 review included taxa previously ascribed to other generas and placed these with the proposed arrangement, the type species was assigned to a new combination as Vespadelus pumilus. Troughton later provided a diagnosis for the genus in 1943, making this name available. Other circumscriptions have assigned these species to genera Pipistrellus and Eptesicus.

An earlier treatment of populations had placed them as the sole species of Eptesicus (E. pumilus). The separation to this genus followed comparative studies that recognised its diversity and nominated new species (Kitchener, 1987; Queale.). Subsequent authors recognition of the arrangement published as Vespadelus by Troughton in 1943 saw the name of this genus reëstablished.The following nine species are currently recognised.

genus Vespadelus Troughton 1943. Reëlevated to genus with new combinations (Queale, 1997 et al). Also known as: forest bats, cave bats. little brown bats

species Vespadelus baverstocki (Kitchener et al, 1987). aka: Baverstock's or inland forest bat

sp. Vespadelus caurinus (Thomas, 1914). northern cave bat

sp. Vespadelus darlingtoni. (Allen, 1933). large forest bat

sp. Vespadelus douglasorum (Kitchener, 1976). yellow-lipped bat

sp. Vespadelus finlaysoni. (Kitchener et al, 1987). Finlayson's cave bat

sp. Vespadelus pumilus (Gray, 1841). eastern forest bat

sp. Vespadelus regulus (Thomas, 1906). southern forest bat

sp. Vespadelus troughtoni. eastern cave bat

sp. Vespadelus vulturnus. little forest bat
