Sturnira tildae de la Torre, 1959, Tilda's yellow-shouldered bat, is a phyllostomid with wide geographic distribution across South America. It inhabits preferably lowland mature rainforests, but also has been captured in modified vegetation and tropical savannas, where it is less abundant. Globally, it is listed as “Least Concern” (LC) by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, but local red lists in southern Brazil have recorded this species as “Vulnerable,” mainly due to habitat destruction (Atlantic Forest deforestation).
