Studies on the Two New Zealand Bats

Mystacina tuberculata tuberculata Gray (Figs. C. E.)

Mystacina tuberculata tuberculata Gray (Figs. C. E.)

Range: North Island, N.Z., and at least northern areas of the South Island.

A small delicately proportioned bat characterised by the length of the ears, which reach to or beyond the tip of the muzzle, and by the remarkably prominent, though narrow, nostrils. Total length up to about 75 mm, wing span to about 280 mm. Gray's plate (1844, PI. 22) illustrated an animal clearly of the northern subspecies which has been named accordingly.
