Zool. 13 192 SMITHSONIAN MISCELLANEOUS COLLECTIONS VOL. 69 Genus LONCHOPHYLLA ThomasThe striking external resemblance of Lonchophylla to Glossophagahas been pointed out in remarks on that genus. The skull is longerand easily distinguishable from that of Glossophaga, by the incom-plete zygomatic arch, and the differing form of the incisors, the uppermedian pair being relatively narrower, higher and more projectingforward, and the lower series having trifid cutting edges. The teethare 34 in number. Two species inhabit the region under review. LONCHOPHYLLA ROBUSTA Miller Rusty Long-tongued Bat [Plate 37, figs. 5, 50] Lonchophylla robusta Miller, Proc. U. S. Nat. Mus., Vol. 42, No. 1882, p. 23,March 6, 1912. Type from cave on Chilibrillo River, Panama. The rusty color and large size distinguish Lonchophylla robustafrom the other Glossophagine bats known to inhabit Panama. Theforearm measures about 45 millimeters.

Fig. 12.—Lonchophylla robusta.No. 179847, U. S. Nat. Mus. About nat. size. The species was first collected by August Busck in a cave on theChilibrillo River near Alhajuela, in 1911. In the following yearspecimens were obtained by me in a limestone cave at about 2,000feet altitude on the slope of the Pirre Mountains near Cana. Thesame cave was inhabited by Lonchophylla concava, Glossophagasoricina leachii, Hemiderma perspicillatum aztecum, Hemidermacastaneum and Desmodus rotundus murinus. Lonchophylla robusta approaches the much smaller species L. mor-dax Thomas in the more important cranial and dental details anddeparts widely from its large congener L. hesperia. G. M. Allen. Noclose comparison with L. concava, the only other species of thegenus known to occur in Panama, is necessary. Specimens examined : Cana, 6 ; Chilibrillo River (Chilibrillo cavenear Alhajuela), 4 (including type).
