Subfamily Carolliinae Miller, 1924

Eight species are currently recognized in the single genus ( Carollia ) comprising this subfamily (Simmons and Cirranello, 2020). Species in this subfamily are characterized by their medium size (forearm 34–45 mm), lack of facial or dorsal stripes, a moderately long muzzle, lack of a distinct boundary between the labial border of the horseshoe and the upper lip, a tail that extends about half the length of the uropatagium, a calcar that is shorter than the foot, broad upper molars with protocones on M1 and M2, and lower molars with well-developed protoconids and hypoconids (McLellan and Koopman, 2008; Cirranello et al. 2016). We recorded all three species of Carollia that are expected to occur in the Yavarí-Ucayali interfluve: C. benkeithi , C. brevicauda , and C. perspicillata .
