An ecologically-significant range extension for Hahn’s short-tailed fruit bat (Carollia subrufa) in southwestern Costa Rica

Keith Keith Christenson, Donald Donald McFarlane

Abstract


A range extension for Hahn’s short-tailed fruit bat, Carollia subrufa, is reported which extends the distribution of the species from the Pacific Dry Forest into the Pacific Moist Forest ecoregion. This raises the possibility that the species may be more widely distributed in Costa Rica than currently supposed, adding almost 30,000 km2 of potential range.

Keywords: Pacific moist forest, Carollia, Phyllostominae, Costa Rica
