Eonycteris spelaea. Morphological Description. · Dorsal fur is dark brown. Ventral fur is lighter. · Juveniles are lighter than adults. · This is a medium-sized fruit. Exploring the genome and transcriptome of the cave nectar bat Eonycteris spelaea with PacBio long-read sequencing. Wen M(1), Ng JHJ(1). The cave nectar bat or lesser dawn bat (Eonycteris spelaea), is known to be a reservoir for several viruses and intracellular bacteria.

Tissue RNA from individual bats was then pooled together. Lesser dawn fruit bats forage in flocks.

Admiralty flying fox P. Our Iso-Seq results have increased our understanding of the complexity of the bat transcriptome and aided in alternative transcript identification.

Cave nectar bat – Wikipedia

Primitive early eocene bat from Wyoming and the evolution of flight and echolocation. Is the bat os penis sexually selected. There is little available information on the home range of E. There is little available information on the way lesser dawn fruit bats communicate and perceive their environment.

Linnean Society Symposium Series. The head and body length measures 8. A behavior unique to E. Because of that, this bat species is a very important pollinator of fruit trees, such as durians[2] notably both Durio zibethinus and Durio graveolens.

Lesser Dawn Bat; Dawn Bat; Dobson’s Long-tongued Fruit Bat; Cave Fruit Bat

Populations in Java and the Lesser Sundas Islands are considered endangered because of cave disturbance, hunting, and habitat destruction. Receive exclusive offers and updates from Oxford Academic. One study finds females exhibiting a pattern characterized by synchronous births and seasonal, bimodal polyestry, while other sources find no synchronicity between females and no seasonal synchronicity.


Eonycteris spelaea is found in various habitats ranging from forested to mixed agricultural types.

Negative There are no known adverse effects of E. In captivity, individuals have been fed coconut Cocos pulp and guava Psidium. Here, we report the whole-genome and transcriptome sequencing, followed by subsequent de novo assembly, of the E. Journal of Mammology69 2: Neuweiler, ; Nowak, In summary, 18, Blanford’s fruit bat S.

Eonyctteris doesn’t cover all species in the world, nor does it include all the eonycteriw scientific information about organisms we describe. The relatively higher number of protein-coding genes predicted in E. Borneo fruit bat A. Dorsal pelage is dark brown and the belly is paler. A major advantage of Iso-Seq technology is that it captures FL gene isoforms without the need for any downstream assembly. They use durian fruit nectar and pollen, and it is suggested that they are the among the most important pollinators of this economically important fruit.

Indeed, comparing the genomes of bats with the genomes of other mammalian species has revealed an unexpected concentration of positively selected genes.

As a result, seplaea predicted gene set included 20, protein-coding genes Fig. The usual number of offspring per year is two. Eonycteris spelaea and O. The newly assembled E. Even without scaffolding, these highly contiguous contigs and FL gene transcripts will be helpful to researchers to extract more accurate genomic loci information of their genes of interest, saving a great amount of energy, resources, and time.


The Gardens’ Bulletin, Singapore. Views Read Edit View history. Identified repeat elements covered Veldkamp’s dwarf epauletted fruit bat N.

Accessed November 30, at http: For the final assembly Espe. Accurate assembly and annotation of genomes is a critical first step for wpelaea functional studies of genetic variation. Nowak, ; Speleaa and Reeder, Characterization of microsatellite loci in the lesser dawn bat Eonycteris spelaea.

Other parameters were set as default. It is also reported that Eonycteris are occasional flower eaters. It is widely distributed throughout the tropics and subtropics from India to Southeast Asia and pollinates several plant species, including the culturally and economically important durian in the region.

Eonycteris spelaea was captured in Singapore at dusk using mist nets and transferred to clean customized bat bags for transportation. In other words, India and southeast Asia. The topological order and estimated divergence time of our phylogeny analysis Fig.
