SPECIES Carollia brevicauda

Author:Schinz, 1821.
Citation:Das Thierreich, 1: 164.
Common Name:Silky Short-tailed Bat
Type Locality:Brazil, Espirito Santo, Jucu River, Fazenda de Coroaba.
Distribution:E Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Surinam, French Guiana, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, and N & E Brazil; Trinidad.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Long confused with perspicillata or subrufa; see Pine (1972). Range restricted to N South America and E Panama by Baker et al. (2002), who referred all Central American records (from W Panama north through Mexico) to sowelli. It is possible that these taxa occur in sympatry in Panama, but this has not yet been demonstrated.
