Descriptive notes. Head-body 53-58 mm (tailless), forearm 36-2-37-8 mm. No other specific measurements are available. Baker’s Tent-making Bat is medium-sized, with gray dorsal fur. Dorsal hairs are bicolored, with pale band at bases and mostly gray toward tips. On broad rostrum, there is a pair of white stripes above and below eyes.
