VOUCHER MATERIAL (TOTAL = 13): Jenaro Herrera (MUSM 5496), Nuevo San Juan (AMNH 272787, 272815; MUSM 13261), Quebrada Betilia (MUSA 15170, 15197), Quebrada Lobo (MUSA 15123), Quebrada Sábalo (MUSA 15212,

15239), Santa Cecilia (FMNH 87059–87062); see table 49 for measurements.

UNVOUCHERED OBSERVATIONS: One individual of Sturnira magna was captured at the Quebrada Limera locality during the Yavarí Rapid Biological Inventory (Escobedo, 2003).

IDENTIFICATION: Sturnira magna can be distinguished from other congeners by its large size (forearm> 51 mm, greatest length of skull> 27 mm); U-shaped posterior border of the hard palate; first upper incisors blunt and in contact; and lower-molar metaconids and entoconids poorly defined, usually forming a continuous, sloping lingual ridge (Gardner, 2008h; López-Baucells et al., 2018). Descriptions and measurements of S. magna were provided by de la Torre (1966), Peterson and Tamsitt (1968), Gardner (1976), Swanepoel and Genoways (1979), and Tamsitt and Häuser (1985). No subspecies are currently recognized (Gardner, 2008h).

Ascorra et al. (1993), Fleck et al. (2002), and Medina et al. (2015) correctly identified their material from Jenaro Herrera, Nuevo San Juan, Quebrada Betilia, Quebrada Lobo, and Quebrada Sábalo. The voucher material we examined from the Yavarí-Ucayali interfluve conforms to previous descriptions of Sturnira magna , with measure- ments that fall within the range of size variation previously documented for the species. REMARKS: The only specimens of Sturnira magna accompanied by capture data from our region were taken in ground-level mistnets near Nuevo San Juan, one in upland primary forest and two others in a swampy mineral lick (collpa).

VOUCHER MATERIAL (TOTAL = 5): Jenaro Her- rera (CEBIOMAS 109; MUSM 5921, 5923, 5926), Río Blanco (MUSA 15080); see table 49 for measurements. UNVOUCHERED OBSERVATIONS: None. IDENTIFICATION: Sturnira tildae can be dis- tinguished from other species of Sturnira by its medium size (forearm 43–51 mm, greatest length of skull 24–26 mm); tricolored dorsal fur; shoulder glands (epaulettes) present and well defined; metacarpal III shorter than meta- carpal V; inner upper incisors broad and weakly bicuspid, with lobes of equal size; lower-molar metaconids and entoconids well defined and separated by a notch; and paraconulids absent on m1 and m2 (Gardner, 2008h; López-Baucells et al., 2018). Descriptions and measurements of S. tildae were provided by de la Torre (1959), Goodwin and Greenhall (1961), Hill (1964), Marinkelle and Cadena (1971), Husson (1978), Genoways and Williams (1979), Swanepoel and Genoways (1979), Brosset and Charles-Domi- nique (1990), Ochoa-G. et al. (1993), Simmons and Voss (1998), Lim et al. (2005), Jarrín-V and Kunz (2011), and Velazco and Patterson (2019). No subspecies are currently recognized (Gard- ner, 2008h). Ascorra et al. (1993) and Medina et al. (2015) correctly identified their specimens from Jenaro Herrera and Río Blanco, respectively. The voucher material we examined from the Yavarí- Ucayali interfluve conforms to previous descriptions of Sturnira tildae , with measurements that fall within the range of size variation previously documented for the species. REMARKS: Of seven recorded captures of Stur- nira tildae accompanied by ecological information from our region, four were taken in ground-level mistnets and three in elevated nets. Of these mistnet captures, four were in primary forest, two were in secondary vegetation, and

one was on a river beach.
