Abstract: The frugivorous bats of the genus Vampyressa include five neotropical species, and some of them are considered relatively rare and uncommonly encountered. The northernmost distribution of this genus is in Mexico where only one species, the monotypic Vampyressa thyone, is found. Here, we report the Northwesternmost record for this species, extending its distribution range to the state of Guerrero, Mexico. This record extends the limit of the species distribution by more than 153 km. We also compared this specim… Show more

“…However, populations of this species may be locally threatened throughout its distribution in Honduras. V. thyone highly depends on mature and well-preserved forests, forages in evergreen forests and has a relatively low abundance in Mexico and Central America being considered an uncommon species (Handley 1966;Jones et al 1971;Lewis and Wilson 1987;Medina-Fitoria 2014;Zamora Mejías and Rodríguez Herrera 2017;Mora et al 2018;Hernández-Canchola et al 2019). In addition to Valdez and LaVal (1971), the sites in Lancetilla may no longer be undisturbed, because we found plantations of rambutans (Nephelium lappaceum) near the studied areas.…”

“…Identification. Vampyressa thyone can be easily differentiated from most other Vampyressa species by its smaller size (forearm lengths in mm are: V. thyone = 29.3-34.0, V. pusilla = 32.3-36.0, V. elisabethae = 36.1-37.8, V. voragine = 37.0-37.8, V. melissa = 36.7-39.8, V. sinchi = 39.1-41.5) (Lim et al 2003;Tavares et al 2014;Hernández-Canchola et al 2019;Morales-Martínez et al 2021). The forearm length in V. thyone only overlaps with V. pusilla, but the latter is restricted to southern Brazil, Paraguay, and northern Argentina, and V. thyone has a smaller and less robust skull and dentition, compared with V. pusilla (Lim et al 2003).…”

“…This genus can be morphologically differentiated from others in the Stenodermatinae by the presence of an accessory cusp at the apex of the upper canines, a small foramen in the medial flange of the palatine process of the premaxilla, and a low extension of the caudal border of the pterygoid that is well separated from the foramen ovale (Tavares et al 2014). Beyond knowing that they are primarily frugivorous, little is known about the feeding habitats, ecology, natural history, and distribution of Vampyressa species (Tavares et al 2014;Rodríguez-Posada et al 2018;Hernández-Canchola et al 2019;Ordoñez-Mazier et al 2020).…”
