By "basal bats" I meant forms that show pre-flight abilities and/or link the
Chiroptera to other placental clades. So far, no such taxa have been
forthcoming (or recognized, at least). Taxa such as _Onychonycteris_ are still
too 'batty' to be of much help in these respects (although _Onychonycteris_ has
been extremely helpful in other respects).
