 en New records of bats from the northern region of the Peruvian Amazon
Diaz, M. Monica

Abstract

The northern Amazon Basin in Peru is one of the most diverse areas for small mammals in the world. In this work, I present information related to the diversity of bat species in the Amazonian region of Iquitos, Peru, where nearly 60% of the 152 bat species known to Peru recorded. Unlike in previous investigations in this area, bat surveys were designed to detect species living in urban and rural areas. The results have added a new bat species ( Eumops delticus check for this species in other resources ) to the Peruvian fauna, eight new species for the region around Iquitos ( Peropteryx macrotis check for this species in other resources , Peropteryx pallidoptera check for this species in other resources , Anoura caudifer check for this species in other resources , Lionycteris spurrelli check for this species in other resources , Vampyrum spectrum check for this species in other resources , Thyroptera lavali check for this species in other resources , Cynomops planirostris check for this species in other resources , and Molossus coibensis check for this species in other resources ), and a new species for Northeast Peru ( Eumops maurus check for this species in other resources ).
