Abstract

Anoura geoffroyi Gray, 1838, is a phyllostomid bat commonly referred to as Geoffroy's tailless bat. This bat is broadly distributed in the Neotropics from both versants of Mexico into northern and western South America and the Amazon Basin. A. geoffroyi eats mainly pollen, but also consumes fruit, nectar, and insects. It is not of special conservation concern because it is abundant throughout its range.
