Taxonomic identity of an insular population of sac-winged bat Saccopteryx (Chiroptera: Emballonuridae).
Thus, the taxonomic identity of the population of sac-winged bats is uncertain; it was reported as S.
Although all populations of sac-winged bats were morphologically different among themselves, population from Gorgona was more similar to S.
This holds true for the greater sac-winged bat (Saccopteryx bilineata), which was the focus of the study.
Knornschild, a researcher at the University of Ulm's Institute of Experimental Ecology, and her team analyzed greater sac-winged bat echolocation calls.

The false vampire bat, or Megaderma lyra, uses distinctive social calls that sound like songs when recorded and played back at a slower speed, to attract female mates while the sac-winged bat

Then they offer detailed accounts of the family Emballonurdiae (sac-winged bats
), family Phyllostomidae (leaf-nosed bats), family Mormoopidae (mustached bats), family Noctilionidae (bulldog bats), family Molossidae (free-tailed bats), and family Vespertillionidae (common bats).
