10 Mar 2020 --- Our latest publication on the systematics and taxonomy of the Choco broad-nosed bat was published today in Mammalian Biology. Morphological and molecular analyses suggest that Platyrrhinus chocoensis should be considered a junior synonym of Platyrrhinus dorsalis. https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s42991-020-00007-z
24 Feb 2020 --- Our latest publication on the systematics and taxonomy of the Stripe-headed round-eared bat was published today in ZooKeys. Morphological and molecular analyses suggest that three species should be recognized in the widespread Tonatia saurophila. https://doi.org/10.3897/zookeys.915.46995
