SPECIES Eptesicus (Eptesicus) andinus

Author:J. A. Allen, 1914.
Citation:Bull. Amer. Mus. Nat. Hist., 33: 382.
Common Name:Little Black Serotine
Type Locality:Colombia, Valle de las Papas, 10,000 ft. (3,333 m).
Distribution:Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, Amazonian Brazil; possibly Bolivia. Also known from S Guyana (B. Lim and M. Engstrom, pers. comm.).
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Subgenus Eptesicus. Included in brasiliensis by Koopman (1978b, 1993, 1994) but see Davis (1966) and Simmons and Voss (1998). Does not include chiriquinus and inca contra Davis (1966); see Simmons and Voss (1998). Anderson (1997) reported specimens of both andinus and montosus from Bolivia, but these records must be considered provisional until the specimens are reexamined in light of Simmons and Voss' (1998) revised diagnoses of andinus and chiriquinus.
