On new Asiatic and Australasian Bats. 439 breadth of brain-case 7*7 ; palato-sinual length 6*6 ; maxillary tooth-row 6"1 J outer breadth across canines 3"9. Nab. Admiralty Islands and Bismarck Archipelago. Type from Manus Island. Ti/pe. Adult (])robably male). B.M. no. 14. 4. 1. 10. Original number 13. Collected 8th September, 1913. This species is readily distinguishable by the enlargement of its canines, a development which reaches its extreme in the great sabre-like canines of Phoniscus. Indeed, I do not feel sure how far the status of Phoniscus as a distinct genus will be affected by the condition found in K. myrella and agnella, in each of which something of its character is shown. I may note iiere that on Mr. Miller's suggestion 1 have examined the types of Kerivoula papuensis, Dobs., and K.jovana, Thos., and find them both to be clearly referable to Phoniscus. 12. Emhallonura solomonis, Thos. Three from Manus and three from Ruk Island. As happens so frequently, the Bismarck Archipelago form is quite like that of the Solomons, while the New Guinea one is distinct. The latter is described in the next paper. 13. Epimys browni, Alst.
