Solitary and group-foraging patterns were observed in the lesser spear-nosed bat, Phyllostomus discolor, while visiting flowers. Observations made at flowering plants of Lafoensia glyptocarpa and two species of Bauhinia in southeastern Brazil suggest that these patterns may be related to the number of flowers or amount of food presented by a given plant.
