I AM grateful for your reviewer's good wishes for the success of my book (NATURE, October 20). He writes that he has only one fault to find, namely, that a paper of Dr. K. Andersen's dealing with the authority for the names Nyctalus noctula and N. leisleri is not mentioned anywhere. I beg to state that the title of this paper is given on p. 53. It could not be cited in the synonymy, as the names Nyctalus noctula and N. leisleri do not actually occur in it. In fact, I believe that my book is the first in which these names occur.
