SPECIES Uroderma bilobatum

Author:Peters, 1866.
Citation:Monatsb. K. Preuss. Akad. Wiss. Berlin, 1866: 392.
Common Name:Common Tent-making Bat
Type Locality:Brazil, São Paulo.
Distribution:Veracruz and Oaxaca (Mexico) south to Peru, Bolivia, the Guianas, and Brazil; Trinidad.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) – Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:See Baker and Clark (1987). There are three chromosomal races that are largely genetically distinct although some hybridization may occur; these may represent distinct species (Hoffman et al., 2003). I have chosen to treat these races as subspecies here pending further study of this complex.
