Mormoopsblainvillei, Antillean Ghost-faced Bat [English]
Status: IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) - Lower Risk (nt)
Comments: See Lancaster and Kalko (1996) and Timm and Genoways (2003). Often spelled blainvillii, but this was an incorrect original spelling; the correct spelling is blainvillei (see Opinion 462 of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1958b). The ICZN placed blainvilli on the Offical Index of Rejected and Invalid Specific Names in Zoology, and placed blainvillei on the Offical List of Specific Names in Zoology in Opinion 462

ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
legal requirements with respect to protected taxa, please contact the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
