Brief Summary

Read full entry

The Anoura fistulata is part of the Phyllostomidae family and Glossophaginae subfamily and was just recently described in 2005 as a new species of the Anoura genus. It is thought to have become allopatrically speciated from its closest relative, A. geoffroyi. A. fistulata is derived from the word fistula, meaning “tube”, indicating its tube shaped snout and jutting lower mandible (Mantilla-Metuk 2008).
