SPECIES Natalus jamaicensis

Author:Goodwin, 1959.
Citation:Amer. Mus. Novit., 1977: 910.
Common Name:Jamaican Greater Funnel-eared Bat
Type Locality:Jamaica, St. Catherine Parish, St. Clair.
Distribution:Jamaica.
Status:IUCN 2003 Not evaluated; not considered in IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001).
Comments:Formerly included in stramineus, but clearly distinct from that species; see Morgan (1989b) and Morgan and Czaplewski (2003). Also distinct from major and primus (A. Tejedor, pers. comm.). See Arroyo-Cabrales et al. (1997), who reviewed genetic variation and possible relationships of populations of jamaicensis, major, and stramineus (although note that all were treated as stramineus). Reviewed by Goodwin (1959b).
