Platalina genovensium  Thomas, 1928, the largest Lonchophyllinae, is a highly specialized phyllostomid bat that feeds primarily on columnar cacti and is listed as Near Threatened by the IUCN. Here we report a new record of an ectoparasite insect for Platalina , Speiseria ambigua Kessel, 1925 (Diptera: Streblidae), obtained from a bat inventory carried out in northwestern Peru. Additionally this record represents the northernmost record of Sp. ambigua in Peru.

It is suggested a role the oil concessions in the area can play towards the conservation of these two unusual bat species, as well as additional actions that will help to protect them.
