IDENTIFICATION: Descriptions and measurements of Rhinophylla pumilio have been provided by Swanepoel and Genoways (1979), Anderson (1997), Simmons and Voss (1998), Rinehart and Kunz (2006), and McLellan and Koopman (2008).

No subspecies are currently recognized in R. pumilio ( McLellan and Koopman, 2008) . Our specimens conform in all respects to previous descriptions and show the characteristics described for the species: margin of uropatagium naked; upper inner incisors relatively broad and with three or four well-defined lobes; and gap absent between upper incisor and canine. Measurements of our vouchers fall within the ranges reported for R. pumilio .
