The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 7 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Based on recent bat surveys in the Department of Madre de Dios, Peru, we present distribution extension records for Thyroptera wynneae Velazco et. al., 2014, and Molossops temminckii (Burmeister, 1854), representing the southernmost records for those species in Peru; and records of Molossus alvarezi González-Ruiz et. al., 2011, representing the easternmost record for this species in the country. Moreover, we present new records for Eumops maurus (Thomas, 1901) and Molossus coibensis Allen, 1904. These records fill existing gaps in the knowledge of the distribution of these species in the Neotropics.
|Title||Noteworthy records of bats (Mammalia, Chiroptera) from southeastern Peru|
|Funding||The Lewis and Clark Fund for the Exploration and Field Research Grant by the American Philosophical Society, the Cleveland Zoological Society (CZS) and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo (CMZ).|
|Study Area Description||We sampled bats in different locations along the Interoceanic Highway, Department of Madre de Dios, Peru.|
|Design Description||We captured bats at five different points located every 75 m along 300 m long transects. Transects were in agricultural land (i.e., papaya plantations or cattle pastures), forest interior, and at the forest edge.|
The personnel involved in the project:
We set up ground level mist-nets (12 m x 3 m). We placed a total of 10 mist‐nets in L-shaped pairs in the forest interior and in agricultural land, while along the forest edge, we placed a total of 15 mist-nets in five sets of three nets in a “T” shape. For further details on sampling design, refer to Carrasco-Rueda and Loiselle (2020) and Carrasco-Rueda (2018). We did not sample during rainy nights or during two days before, the day of, and two days after a full moon to avoid possible effects on bat captures (Saldana-Vazquez and Munguia-Rosas 2013). We checked mist‐nets for bats every 30 min. Once released from mist‐nets, we placed the bats in individual cloth bags and took them to a temporary camp.
|Study Extent||Each transect was sampled one night during each visit from 17:30 hrs. to 23:30 hrs.|
Method step description:
- For handling bats, we followed the guidelines provided by the American Society of Mammalogists (Sikes et al. 2016). All collected specimens were fixed in 10% formalin and then preserved in 70% ethanol. Voucher specimens were catalogued at the Centro de Ecología y Biodiversidad (CEBIO).The skulls were removed from the bodies for subsequent cleaning and fixation. All measurements were taken with digital calipers accurate to 0.01 mm.
