SPECIES Glyphonycteris behnii

Author:Peters, 1865.
Citation:Monatsb. K. Preuss. Akad. Wiss. Berlin, 1865: 505.
Common Name:Behn's Bat
Type Locality:Brazil, Mato Grosso, Cuiaba (= Cuyaba).
Distribution:Known only from the holotype.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Vulnerable as Micronycteris behnii.
Comments:Restricted to include only the holotype by Simmons (1996). This taxon may be a senior synonym of sylvestis, but the relationship of these taxa cannot be resolved without reexamination of the holotype of behnii in the context of what is now known about variation in sylvestris; see discussion in Simmons (1996).
