Lophostoma carrikeri (Allen, 1910) (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae): first confirmed records in Ecuador
Herein we confirm the occurrence of Lophostoma carrikeri in Ecuador. One adult female was collected in Orellana province on 17 September 2012 at Boanamo, Waorani Ethnic Reserve, and another on 5 MayExpand
A new polytypic species of yellow-shouldered bats, genus Sturnira (Mammalia: Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae), from the Andean and coastal mountain systems of Venezuela and Colombia.
TLDR
The two new subspecies of Sturnira adrianae are the most sexually dimorphic members of this clade and can be assigned to the Vulnerable (VU) conservation category of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Expand
Systematics and Taxonomy of Tonatia saurophila Koopman & Williams, 1951 (Chiroptera, Phyllostomidae)
TLDR
This study evaluates the intraspecific relationships within Tonatia saurophila and the taxonomic status of the taxon using morphological descriptions, morphometric analyses, and phylogenetic reconstruction using the mitochondrial gene Cyt-b and the nuclear exon RAG2. Expand
Genetic diversity of the ghost-faced bat Mormoops megalophylla Peters, 1864 (Chiroptera: Mormoopidae) in Ecuador; implications for its conservation
TLDR
The preservation of this vulnerable species will depend on conservation efforts and studies that seek to supplement the analysis of genetic variability with other molecular markers, a continued monitoring of migratory processes, and inventorying of intermediate sites and localities with historical records.

DISTRIBUTION AND MORPHOMETRIC VARIATION OF Micronycteris schmidtorum (SANBORN, 1935)(CHIROPTERA: PHYLLOSTOMIDAE) IN NORTH SOUTH AMERICA WITH THE FIRST RECORD FROM ECUADOR
We present a revision of distribution of Micronycteris schmidtorum in Northern South America reporting fourteen new localities of the species for Colombia and Ecuador on both sides of the Andes. WeExpand
A taxonomic revision of the Yasuni Round-eared bat, Lophostoma yasuni (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae).
TLDR
The Yasuni Round-eared bat, Lophostoma yasuni, was described in 2004 by morphological analysis of the holotype and a molecular analysis using cytochrome-b sequences and a new morpholo-gical analysis places it within the clade of L. carrikeri. Expand
An accounting approach to calculate the financial value of a natural history collection of mammals in Ecuador
ABSTRACT Biologists and economists collaborated to estimate the monetary value of the Mammal collection of the Museo de Zoología at PUCE in Quito. We analyzed the direct and indirect costs associatedExpand
Leveraging natural history biorepositories as a global, decentralized, pathogen surveillance network
TLDR
A novel adaptation of Project ECHO’s virtual community of practice model is highlighted: Museums and Emerging Pathogens in the Americas (MEPA), a virtual network aimed at fostering communication, coordination, and collaborative problem-solving among pathogen researchers, public health officials, and biorepositories in the Americans.
