Based on study of 388 specimens of Noctilio leporinus from throughout the range of the species, three geographic areas of differentiation can be recognized. One is the rim of the Caribbean Basin where the bats are large in size and, although variable in color, usually have a distinct but pale middorsal stripe. The appropriate name for these bats is Noctilio leporinus mastivus (Vahl). The second area includes the Guianas and the Amazon Basin where the bats are small in size, dark in color, and… Expand
BATS OF THE ARGENTINE YUNGAS: A SYSTEMATIC AND DISTRIBUTIONAL ANALYSIS

Bats from Southern Haiti
TLDR
Differences in reproductive biology between Haitian bats and closely related species on the Central American mainland may be correlated with differences in climate between the two areas. Expand
Evolutionary history of bulldog bats (genus Noctilio): recent diversification and the role of the Caribbean in Neotropical biogeography
TLDR
How phylogeographic studies support the identification of independent evolutionary lineages is indicated, driving new systematic/taxonomic investigations, while at the same time shed light on the role of the Caribbean in shaping Neotropical bat fauna diversity. Expand
Bats of Nevis, Northern Lesser Antilles
TLDR
The chiropteran fauna of Nevis lies outside the Lesser Antillean Faunal Core and would be best characterized as a generalized Lesserants fauna that appears to be characteristic of the northern LesserAntilles. Expand
Sexual dimorphism and geographic variation of the skull of the fishing bat Noctilio leporinus (Chiroptera: Noctilionidae) in Mexico
TLDR
There were differences between sexes in the size and shape of the sagittal crest, in both populations, and these results suggest a continuous trend of development of this character in males, which imply functional differences in masticatory function between sexes. Expand
Bats of the Grenadine Islands, West Indies, and placement of Koopman’s line
TLDR

Bats of Margarita Island, Venezuela, with Zoogeographic Comments
TLDR
The chiropteran fauna of Margarita Island is compared with the bat faunas of the adjacent Venezuelan mainland and islands off the nOIthern coast of South America, including Trinidad and other Antillean islands and it is concluded that the chiropterans fauna represents an attenuated mainland fauna.
