Characters and phylogenetic relationships of nectar-feeding bats, with descriptions of new Lonchophylla from western South America (Mammalia: Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae: Lonchophyllini)
The authors' morphological and morphometrical analyses of the smaller Lonchophyllini revealed the existence of two distinctive, previously undescribed species of bats from western South America, and phyllogenetic analysis indicates that these two new species are closely related to LonChophylla thomasi.
Comparison of traps and baits for censusing small mammals in Neotropical lowlands.
Snap-traps, live-traps, and baits affect the ability to capture small mammals, but few previous studies have involved sampling communities of small mammals in tropical environments. We tested
Patterns of morphological variation amongst semifossorial shrews in the highlands of Guatemala, with the description of a new species (Mammalia, Soricomorpha, Soricidae)
A new species of Cryptotis goldmani, a small-eared shrew endemic to highland forests in the Sierra de los Cuchumatanes of western Guatemala, is described and its morphology is characterized.
A new species of small-eared shrew from Colombia and Venezuela (Mammalia: Soricomorpha: Soricidae: Genus Cryptotis)
Morphological and morphometiical study of the population of small-eared shrews inhabiting the northern Cor- dillera Oriental of Colombia and adjoining Venezuelan highlands indicates that it belongs to neither taxon, but represents a distinct, pre- viously unrecognized species.
Two new species of shrews (Soricidae) from the western highlands of Guatemala
Abstract The broad-clawed shrews (Soricomorpha: Soricidae: Cryptotis) encompass a clade of 5 species—Cryptotis alticolus (Merriam), C. goldmani (Merriam), C. goodwini Jackson, C. griseoventris
Taxonomy and evolutionary relationships of Phillips' small-eared-shrew, Cryptotis phillipsii (Schaldach, 1966), from Oaxaca, Mexico (Mammalia: Insectivora: Soricidae)
Analysis of museum specimens from these two populations of a small-eared shrew of the Cryptotis mexicana-group indicates that they are neither conspecific nor even sister taxa, and it is demonstrated that C. phillipsii is the most primitive member of the C. mexico-group, whereas, C. peregrina is one of the more derived members of the group.

Tests for sexual dimorphism within these and other species of Lonchophyllini suggest a tendency for females to have slightly longer, narrower skulls, higher coronoid processes of the mandible, and longer forearms than males.
