Measurements used in this study include: head and body length (cm), measured dorsally, from the tip of the rhinarium to the cranial margin of the first caudal vertebra; tail length (cm), ventrally, from the base of the anus to the distal end of the last caudal vertebra; head length (mm), maximum length of the head from the most projecting margin of the rhinarium to the back of the braincase; head width (mm), maximum bizygomatic breadth; ear (or pinna) length (mm), maximum length between the base of the tragus and the tip of the pinna.
