Abstract: We provide the first report of the frequency of leucism for a species of Neotropical bat. Leucism is an anomaly of the skin pigmentation of an animal that manifests itself as the total or partial loss of the natural color of the species, and can affect part of or the entire body. During a study involving capture and marking individuals of a population of A. geoffroyi residing in a cave in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, seven individuals with some degree of depigmentation were recorded out of 616 individu… Show more

“…These hypopigmentary disorders have been reported in several bat species of the Molossidae, Mormoopidae, Phyllostomidae, and Vespertilionidae families in many Neotropical countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico and Venezuela (Geiger & Pacheco 2006, Ruelas et al 2016, Medina & López 2010, Marin-Vasquez et al 2010, Idoeta et al 2011, López-Wilchis & León 2012, Rocha et al 2013, Olarte-González et al 2014, Tello et al 2014, Trujillo & Barahona 2014, Romano et al 2015, Mello-Torres & Salazar-Candelle 2016, Zalapa et al 2016, Mejía-Quintanilla et al 2017, Hernández-Aguilar & Santos-Moreno 2018, Escobar-Anleu & Mora 2018, Reis et al 2019, Borloti et al 2019, Pereira et al 2022, Santos-Moreno & Hernández-Aguilar 2022. The manifestation of these disorders is unusual in wild mammals (Abreu et al 2013), and various authors associate it to ecological and genetic factors, the isolation of populations and inbreeding, or exposure to chemical substances or radiation (Bensch et al 2000, Moller et al 2013, Beninato et al 2020.…”
