Abstract

Phylogenetic study was carried out to clarify the taxonomic status of Tylonycteris by as both of the species in the genus, namely T. robustula and T. pachypus have high similarity in their morphological characters. A total of 32 samples represented Sarawak and Peninsular Malaysia populations were used in this study. However, only nineteen samples were sent for sequencing. The phylogenetic trees were constructed by Neighbour joining (NJ), Maximum parsimony (MP) and Maximum likelihood (ML) methods using 659bp of partial mtDNA COI gene. All the phylogenetic trees constructed separated both species into two different major clade. But, two individuals of T. robustula were found clade together with T. pachypus indicate misidentification of species or the presence of cryptic species within T. pachypus might occur.
