Big-eared bats taxonomy

As all of you know, the taxonomy of Palearctic big-eared bats (Plecotus) has recently been completely overhauled, with numerous species split. IUCN Red List has implemented the change only partially: the ranges of the old species are now shown truncated, but the new species are not mentioned yet. I got the PDF of the original paper (really well written, useful for ID purposes and with distribution maps), so if you’d like to have it, just send me an email to dinets at gmail.
