SPECIES Sturnira (Sturnira) luisi

Author:Davis, 1980.
Citation:Occas. Pap. Mus. Texas Tech Univ., 70: 1.
Common Name:Luis's Yellow-shouldered Bat
Type Locality:Costa Rica, Alajuela, 11 mi. (18 km) NE Naranjo, Cariblanco, 3,000 ft. (914 m).
Distribution:Costa Rica to Ecuador and NW Peru.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Subgenus Sturnira. The presence of this species in Colombia has not been verified; previously confused with Sturnira ludovici (Tamsitt, in Honacki et al., 1982). Brosset and Charles-Dominique (1990) suggested that luisi might be conspecific with tildae, but see Simmons and Voss (1998).
