Platyrrhinus infuscus (Peters, 1880)  

VOUCHER MATERIAL: El Diamante: 5 adult females ( FMNH 203452 View Materials , 203634 View Materials , 203638 View Materials ; MUSM 39213, 39214), 5 adult males ( FMNH 203450 View Materials , 203454 View Materials , 203636 View Materials ; MUSM 39211, 39212)   ; Waqanki: 4 adult females ( FMNH 203630 View Materials , 203632 View Materials ; MUSM 39206, 39209), 8 adult males ( FMNH 203444 View Materials , 203446 View Materials , 203448 View Materials , 203628 View Materials ; MUSM 39205, 39207, 39208, 39210)   ; see table 13 for measurements.

IDENTIFICATION: We consulted descriptions and measurements of Platyrrhinus infuscus   provided by Cabrera (1958), Gardner and Carter (1972), Swanepoel and Genoways (1979), Velazco (2005), and Velazco and Gardner (2009). No subspecies are currently recognized in P. infuscus ( Gardner, 2008d)   . Our Mayo River basin specimens exhibit the diagnostic characteristics of the species: larger size (FA> 54 mm); dark brown dorsal pelage; facial and dorsal stripes inconspicuous; short, sparse hair on the upper surface of feet; posterolabial cuspulid present on p5; M1 parastyle present; and m1 metaconid well developed ( Velazco, 2005; Gardner, 2008d). Measurements of our specimens fall within the range reported for the species.
