An additional record of Platyrrhinus ismaeli Velazco, 2005 on the western slope of Peru, with taxonomic comments

M. Rengifo, EdgardoPacheco, VictorSalas, Edith

Platyrrhinus ismaeli is reported for the first time in the department of Ancash, Peru, becoming the sourthermost record from the western slope of the Peruvian Andes. We discuss the lateral folds in the pinna as a valid diagnostic character for P. ismaeli, suggesting this character does not discriminate P. ismaeli from other species; and present an updated distribution map for the species.
