STENODERMATINAE

Although other Amazonian sites are known to have more than 20 sympatric species of Stenodermatinae , we captured only 15 species of this phyllostomid subfamily at Paracou. Following the taxonomic usage recommended by Peffley et al. (MS), the Paracou species represent eight genera: Ametrida , Artibeus (including Dermanura and Koopmania ), Chiroderma , Ectophylla (including Mesophylla ), Platyrrhinus (formerly Vampyrops ), Sturnira , Uroderma , and Vampyressa . Collections from other localities in French Guiana and Surinam include an additional seven stenodermatine species (appendix 1), but for reasons explained below (see Analyses of Sampling: Estimating Completeness) we doubt that any of these normally occur within our study area.
