 Geographic Information
  Geographic Division:    



  Comment: Comments: Equivalent to Glossophaginae as used by Griffiths (1982). See discussion in Wetterer et al. (2000); also see Carstens et al. (2002). Informally divided into to two groups by Carstens et al. (2002); 'choeronycterines' (Anoura, Choeronycteris, Choeroniscus, Hylonycteris, Lichonycteris, Musonycteris, and Scleronycteris), and 'glossophagines' (Glossophaga, Leptonycteris, and Monophyllus)  
    See Dávalos et al. (2012). The content and subdivision of the subfamily Glossophaginae (exclusive of Lonchophyllinae) remain a matter of contention. Until the matter is better settled, ITIS will use genera within the subfamily
