Flying Foxes Composite (image) Smithsonian Share Print E-Mail Caption (A) This 1882 illustration of the Mortlock flying fox from Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London uses the now incorrect name for the animal. Its original and correct name is "Pteropus pelagicus." Shown is the scanned image of Plate LIV from original description of Pteropus phaeocephalus Thomas 1882, which is presumably based on the holotype (B) dorsal view and (C) ventral view of Pteropuspelagicus pelagicus from Satawan Atoll (D) ventral view and (E) dorsal view of Pteropusphaeocephalus insularis from Weno, Chuuk Lagoon.
