Incongruity with the Megabat article[edit]

There seems to be an incongruity between this item and the Megabat item. From this item:

"Most molecular biological evidence supports the view that bats form a single or monophyletic group."

However, the Megabat page contains this:

"Bats are usually thought to belong to one of two monophyletic groups, a view that is reflected in their classification into two suborders (Megachiroptera and Microchiroptera)."

I really do not know anything about bats. But it strikes me that these two entries are at odds. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.160.244.8 (talk) 19:50, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Origin of "bat"?[edit]

The article discusses the word for "bat " in other languages but doesn't discuss the origin of the English word "bat" itself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 23.119.205.88 (talk) 00:49, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

White Nose Syndrome[edit]

In this diff, User:‎Shadowkittie5460 added a paragraph of extra information about recent research into White Nose Syndrome. While this looks good, and is cited, I wonder whether this much information belongs in a section in the general Bat article, when we have a separate article on White Nose Syndrome linked at the top of the section.
