  • noun Plural form of mystacinid.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • A few pteropodids (fruit bats), notably the Hammer-headed fruit bat Hypsignathus montrosus, have been reported to feed from carrion and even attack tethered chickens (Hill & Smith 1984), and the New Zealand mystacinids are also known to sometimes scavenge from carcasses.

  • I’m planning to post various entries on bats at some stage (including on New Zealand’s mystacinids, recently discovered European bats, and on megabat evolution), but haven’t gotten round to it yet.
