Subspecific structure of Myotis daubentonii (Chiroptera, Vespertilionidae) and composition of the "daubentonii" species group
Myotis daubentonii is one of the most widely distributed bat species. According to our investigations this species may be divided into two groups of forms, referable to as the "Western" and "Eastern" groups. The oldest name for the latter is M. d. petax Hollister, 1912. These groups differ in several measurements and morphological features, particularly craniodental traits. Animals from the South of Central Siberia belong to the eastern complex. No significant differences were found between specimens from Central Europe and European Russia. On the contrary, animals from Western Siberia and, probably Ural mountains, slightly differ from the European ones. In the eastern complex three forms appear to occur: Sayan- Transbaikalian, Amur-Mantjurian (chosanensis ? = loukashkini) and Ussurian (ussuriensis). The Altai population ("petax") is highly variable. On the whole, the "daubentonii" species group includes at least seven Eurasian species (including the newly described Vietnamese M. annamiticus), plus four forms of uncertain taxonomic position. Amongst these species, small montane forms with low rostrum and deep fronto-nasal flexure may be separated into their own subgroup or group, "longipes".
