 Comments
       
  Comment: US ESA: Potential candidate without sufficient data on vulnerability, as published in Federal Register Volume 59, Number 219, Pages 58982 - 59028, November 15, 1994  
    Status: IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) - Vulnerable  
    Comments: See Genoways and Baker (1972) and Timm and Genoways (2003)  
    Mandatory correction for gender concordance; Stenoderma is treated as neuter, so the name in this combination should be rufum, not rufa
