EMBALLONURIDAE 

We captured 10 emballonurid species at Paracou, three of which are here reported for the first time from French Guiana. The spe­cies we identified from morphological voucher material represent the genera Cen­tronycteris  , Cormura  , Diclidurus  , Peropteryx  (including Peronymus  ), Rhynchonycteris  , and Saccopteryx  . Published records from elsewhere in French Guiana and Surinam in­clude another four emballonurid species that might also occur in our study area (appendix 1).
