The richness of plant and animal species in the tropical regions is well known. Bats are no exception (Tamsitt 1967, Fleming 1973). In the city of Londrina, crossed by the Tropic of Capricorn, 36 Chiropterans species are found, most of them inhabiting forest fragments (Reis & Muller 1995), due to the great degree of deforestation resulting from agricultural production.
