Abstract

Field studies in Colombia in 1959-1962 resulted in the collection of 245 specimens of 25 species of bats. These represented six families as follows: Emballonuridae, 2; Noctilionidae, 1; Phyllostomidae, 14; Desmodontidae, 1; Vespertilionidae, 3; Molossidae, 4. Additional records for two species (Phyllostomus discolor, Lonchophylla robusta) thought to be uncommon in Colombia are presented, and altitudinal ranges of several species (Sturnira ludovici, Desmodus rotundus, Myotis nigricans, Tadarida brasiliensis, Eumops glaucinus) are shown to be great in the western Andean region. Notes on distribution, variation, reproduction, food habits and general natural history are presented for many of the species.
