 Comments
       
  Comment: Comments: Includes Desmodontidae; see Jones and Carter (1976). For use of Phyllostomidae rather than Phyllostomatidae, see Handley (1980). The classification used here generally follows that of Wetterer et al. (2000), which was based on a phylogenetic analysis of morphological data, restriction sites, and sex chromosomes; all genera, tribes, and subfamilies appear to be monophyletic unless otherwise noted. See Baker et al. (2000) for an alternative phylogeny based on mtDNA sequence data; also see Bak...  
    ITIS is generally following the Phyllostomidae classification of Baker et al. (2003) as implemented in later works, e.g., Gardner (ed., 2008), Nogueira et al. (2012), etc.
