 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) - Lower Risk (lc)  
    Comments: Subgenus Eptesicus. Does not include andinus, chiriquinus, inca, or montosus; see W. B. Davis (1966) and Simmons and Voss (1998). Davis (1966) suggested that the holotype of hilarii may be referable to fuscus, but retained it in brasiliensis pending more comparisons. See Williams (1978c) for discussion of hilarii and melanopterus. Subspecies were delimited by W. B. Davis (1966), but additional specimens collected subsequently have made subspecies limits somewhat unclear
