 Comments
       
  Comment: Comments: Often considered a subgenus of Pipistrellus (e.g, Hill and Harrison, 1987; Koopman, 1994) or Eptesicus (e.g., Koopman, 1993) but raised to generic rank and transferred to Vespertilionini by Volleth et al. (2001) based on karyotype data. Also see Kearney et al. (2002), who provided additional evidence in support of this arrangment. For a partial phylogeny see Kearney et al. (2002), who also suggested that Laephotis might nest within Neoromicia
