SPECIES Mimon crenulatum

Author:E. Geoffroy, 1803.
Citation:Cat. Mamm. Mus. Nat. d'Hist. Nat.: 61.
Common Name:Striped Hairy-nosed Bat
Type Locality:Brazil, Bahia; see Handley (1960).
Distribution:Chiapas and Campeche (Mexico) to Guianas, E Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador and E Peru; Trinidad.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Does not include koepckeae; see Gardner and Patton (1972). Reviewed by Handley (1960), Jones and Carter (1979), and Koopman (1978b). Because Wilson and Reeder (1993) did not treat names established in E. Geoffroy (1803) as available, Koopman (1993) attributed authorship of crenulatum to a later work by E. Geoffroy, but this name was actually published in the 1803 volume, which is now accepted (Grubb, 2001a; Opinion 2005 of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 2002b).
