Artibeus fimbriatus

Artibeus fimbriatus

Fringed Fruit-eating Bat

We caught this large frugivorous bat in Misiones in December 2017.

It is similar to Artibeus lituratus, which is common in Misiones and Corrientes, but is smaller with less contrasting facial stripes.

It is a dark grey overall and like the other members of this genus has a well developed uropatagium and no tail. The nose leaf is fused to the upper lip.

It is only found in Misiones, Corrientes, Chaco and Formosa.
