Author:Peters, 1865.
Actual Date:1866
Citation:Monatsb. K. Preuss. Akad. Wiss. Berlin, 1865: 575.
Common Name:Southern Dog-faced Bat

Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Lectotype designated by Carter and Dolan (1978). Does not include milleri or paranus; see Williams and Genoways (1980c), Barquez et al. (1993), and Simmons and Voss (1998). Specimens previously reported from Ecuador apparently represent paranus; planirostris is not presently known from Ecuador (Reid et al., 2000).
