Using various sources, including the Global Biodiversity Information Facility GBIF , published literature, recent — collections, as well as bat detector and camera trap surveys with opportunistic sightings and live capture in the upper Okavango catchment in central Angola, we present an updated mammal checklist of species from 15 different orders for Angola including the Cabinda region.
Recent surveys captures and bat detectors of small mammals from the upper Okavango catchment yielded 46 species 33 species of bats, ten species of rodents and three species of shrews.
While our species lists of bats conformed to predicted totals, terrestrial small mammals were under sampled, with only 13 species recorded by our trapping survey compared to a total of 42 shrew and rodent species expected based on GBIF records for the central Angolan highlands.
Seven terrestrial small mammal species one shrew and six rodents are endemic to the central and western Angolan highlands but none of these were captured in our survey. The bat detector surveys added three further bat species to the country list: Pipistrellus hesperidus , Kerivoula argentata , and Mops midas. Camera trap surveys and opportunistic sightings in the upper Okavango catchment in yielded a total of 35 species of medium-large mammals, from 17 families, although all of these had been reported previously in Angola.
Country species checklists and distribution maps for key taxa such as mammals represent a critical step in national efforts towards reaching international e. At the same time, advances in technology such as camera traps and microphones including bat detectors and associated analytical tools are facilitating rapid and efficient field inventories of groups such as larger mammals, bats, birds, crickets, and amphibians.
