MANTILLA-MELUK, Hugo; RAMIREZ-CHAVES, Héctor E; PARLOS, Julie A y BAKER, Robert J.. Geographic Range Extensions And Taxonomic Notes On Bats Of The Genus Lonchophylla (Phyllostomidae) From Colombia. Mastozool. neotrop. [online]. 2010, vol.17, n.2, pp. 295-303. ISSN 0327-9383.
As a result of a systematic review of nectar feeding bats in the genus Lonchophylla (Phyllostomidae) deposited in the scientific collections of the Instituto de Ciencias Naturales (ICN) in Bogotá and the Museo de Historia Natural of the Universidad del Cauca (MHNUC) in Popayán, we report range extensions for three Colombian species. Lonchophylla cadenai is reported from Pueblo Rico, Risaralda, representing an increase in both altitudinal and latitudinal ranges; L. handleyi is reported from Cueva de los Guácharos, Huila, confirming the presence of this taxon in Colombia and representing its northernmost known record; and L. pattoni is reported from Leticia, Amazonas, which constitutes the third known collecting locality for this taxon and represents the northernmost known record for the species. In addition, an annotated list of all Lonchophylla specimens present in the two studied collections is included.
