NOTES ON SYCONYCTERIS AUSTRALIS, PETERS, 1867 (MEGACHIROPTERA)

NOTES ON SYCONYCTERIS AUSTRALIS, PETERS, 1867 (MEGACHIROPTERA) by John E. NELSON * La distribution de Syconycteris australis (Megachiroptera) cst comprise entre 23°30' et 28°20' de latitude sud. Cette espece semble former des rassemblements pendant 2-4 semaines au debut d'octobre. Dans ces rassemblements, Taccouchenient est suivi par un post-partum oestrus et la conception. Although large collections of Syconycteris australis (PL XXI) have been made in New Guinea (Täte, 1942 ; Van Deusen, pers. comm.), few specimens have been recorded from Australia. The range of S. australis in Australia is given by Andersen (1912), Iredale and Troughton (1934), Troughton (1941), and Laurie and Hill (1954), as Cape York to the Atherton Tableland, Mackay and Rockhampton (latitude 23°30' S.). There are reports in the literature (Peters 1867, Dobson 1878, Ogilby .1892) that the species occurs in Western Australia, but Andersen (1912), p. 781, considers that in the original reference by Peters (1867), « W. Australia » is evidently an error for « N. Australia », and that Dobson followed Peters, and Ogilby followed Dobson. There is a spirit specimen in the Australian Museum, Sydney (M4463) labelled « Macroglossus australis » from Montville, Palmwoods, Queensland, with the date 21/12/1928, which extends the known southern limit to latitude 26°40' S. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Mammalia - International Journal of the Systematics, Biology and Ecology of Mammals de Gruyter
