Studies on the Two New Zealand Bats



The present paper describes the hair structure of the two New Zealand bats Chalinolobus tuberculatus (Forster), F. Vespertilionidae, and Mystacina tuberculata Gray, F. Mystacinidae, and examines the affinities of these species in the light of this. Hairs from the mid-dorsal region at scapula level were examined and sketched using a camera lucida. The terminology of Benedict (1957) is followed.
