Sturnira is the most speciose genus of New World leaf-nosed bats (Phyllostomidae). We name Sturnira adrianae, new species. This taxon is born polytypic, divided into a larger subspecies (S. a. adrianae) widespread in the mountains of northern and western Venezuela, and northern Colombia, and a smaller subspecies (S. a. caripana) endemic to the mountains of(More)
In 2008 a mammal survey was conducted in humid tropical forest on the western slope of the Andes near the town of Santa Rosa. Sherman traps, tomahawk traps, pitfall traps, and mist nets were used to collect mammal specimens at two sites (450 m elevation and 702 m elevation). A total of 113 specimens of 32 species were collected from the survey area.(More)
The Yasuni Round-eared bat, Lophostoma yasuni, was described in 2004 by morphological analysis of the holotype, the only specimen attributed to this taxon to date. A molecular analysis using cytochrome-b sequences and a new morpholo-gical analysis that includes the holotype of L. yasuni and two specimens of L. carrikeri from near the type locality of L.(More)
In 2014, a mammal survey was conducted in an ecotone region (including páramo and temperate forest) on the Eastern Versant of the Andes in Carchi province, Ecuador. Sherman traps, Tomahawk traps, pitfall traps, and mist nets were used to collect mammal specimens at two sites (3,340 m elevation and 3,650 m elevation). A total of 142 specimens representing 14(More)
In this study, the genetic substructure and morphology of the species Neusticomys monticolus was evaluated. A nuclear marker and mitochondrial maker were used to examine phylogeographic structure and to estimate genetic distances. Two statistical measurement analyses were applied to morphological data. These data recovered two morphologically distinct(More)
