    Comments: Subgenus Murina. Reviewed in part by Sinha (1999) and Hendrichsen et al. (2001b). Does not include tubinaris, see Hill (1963a, 1983), Bates and Harrison (1997), Sinha (1999), and Hendrichsen et al. (2001b). Some SE Asian specimens previously referred to tubinaris may represent huttoni, see Hendrichsen et al. (2001b). Sometimes spelled huttonii  
    Final epithet spelled 'huttoni' by Ellerman (1951) and Wilson & Reeder, eds. (2005), but the original and correct spelling is 'huttonii' (Peters, 1872)
