Platyrrhinus lineatus

Platyrrhinus lineatus

White-lined Bat

This bat belongs to the family Phyllostomidae, sub family Stenodermatinae.  

We caught this beautiful frugivorous bat in our Harp trap in Sept. 2017at the south of the reserve.  It is adapted to hunt in cluttered environments therefore has wide cirved wings to give it the lift it needs.

This is a stunning bat of around 25g and is med-large.  It has white facial stripes and a dorsal stripe that runs from its neck to its uropatagium.

It used to be rare in the province of Corrientes but we catch quite a lot of this species so it looks as if it is increasing.  We also catch it in the province of Misiones and have found 2 roosts, one in an abandoned building and one in a private garage at an estancia.
