SUAREZ-CASTRO, Andrés F; RAMIREZ-CHAVES, Héctor E; RODRIGUEZ-POSADA, Miguel E and GARCIA, Javier. New record of Peropteryx leucoptera and first record of Peropteryx pallidoptera (Chiroptera-Emballonuridae) from Colombia. Mastozool. neotrop. [online]. 2012, vol.19, n.1, pp. 165-171. ISSN 0327-9383.
We present new records of Peropteryx leucoptera from two localities in the Colombian Llanos. For this species these records constitute both the northern-most record and the first time it has been found in a different ecosystem such as the savannas of the Orinoco. In addition we report the first record of P. pallidoptera from the eastern Andean slopes in the Amazonian foothills of Colombia, which constitutes the northern-most known record for this species.
