On the 17th of december we've found this Phyllostomatidae in one of the cabins on Nassau mountains. I think it is Uroderma bilobatum, one of the tentmaking bats could someone confirm?

Cheers

I spoke to someone with a collection of bats in Suriname. He thinks it would probably be Patyrrhinus helleri or Artibeus lituratus, they look very similar to Urodema, especially with the stripes, but Urodema doesn't have any warts on the lower lip. Artibeus looks like helleri but is somewhat darker colored. He will send the pictures to a specialist, I will get back to you later.

later jos

His reply: is it too late to get a forearm measurement or photo of its membrane between the legs? The rostrum doesn't look as deep as in this species.  My best guess is Chiroderma trinitatum.

Hi Dick,

I've had contact with some bat-experts in NL about neotropical bats. We came to the conclusion that it is Uroderma bilobatum.

Cheers!
