|Scientific Name:||Cynomops planirostris (Peters, 1865)|
Molossops planirostris (Peters, 1865)
|Taxonomic Notes:||The lectotype was designated by Carter and Dolan (1978). It does not include milleri or paranus. Specimens previously reported from Ecuador apparently represent paranus; planirostris is not presently known from Ecuador (Reid et al. 2000).
Cynomops generally is regarded as either a monophyletic genus or, in some cases, a subgenus of Molossops. In the molecular analysis, species traditionally included within Molossops and Cynomops each comprised two well-supported monophyletic lineages. The data also support the recognition of Cynomops and Molossops as divergent lineages worthy of generic status. Species limits and phylogenetic relationships within Cynomops, however, remain unresolved (Peters et al. 2002).
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Barquez, R. & Diaz, M.|
This species is listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining at nearly the rate required to qualify for listing in a threatened category.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
