Genus Phyllostomus Lacépède, 1799

The genus Phyllostomus includes three widespread species and one ( P. latifolius ) with a more limited distribution (Simmons, 2005; Williams and Genoways, 2008; Simmons and Cirranello, 2020). References useful for identifying species of Phyllostomus include Santos et al. (2003) and Williams and Genoways (2008), both of which provided keys based on external and craniodental morphology; two other references, Rodríguez- Posada and Sánchez-Palomino (2009) and López- Baucells et al. (2018) provided keys based on external characters only. We recorded all three of the widespread species in the Yavarí-Ucayali interfluve: P. discolor , P. elongatus , and P. hastatus .
