A few news bits:
1. A review of Chiroderma bats. Compared to HBW/IUCN version, it considers vizottoi a subspecies of doriae, but splits scopaeum and gorgasi as full species.
2. How to find roosts of flat-headed myotis (Myotis planiceps).
3. Apparently, the best place to look for tufted squirrel (Rheithrosciurus macrotis) in Borneo is Gunung Palung NP in West Kalimantan.
4. It is now possible to photograph habituated Caucasian ibex in Kabardino-Balkaria NR. Contact Buzjigit Akkiev on Facebook.
5. Where to look for long-tailed bandicoot rat (Nesokia bunnii) in Iraq. It is now extremely rare; I suspect it’s been replaced by ubiquitous N. indica.
6. Washing Sherman traps after each capture is not good for capture numbers but improves species diversity (which is what everybody here is interested in I presume).
