Rhinonycteridae Gray, 1866


Family Rhinonycteridae Gray, 1866 View in CoL

From their study of 19 nuclear exon and intron gene fragments, Foley et al. (2014) demonstrated that the genera Cloeotis , Rhinonicteris , Paratriaenops and Triaenops differed significantly enough from the genera Asellia , Aselliscus , Coelops and Hipposideros to assign them to a separate family, the Rhinonycteridae .
