Two new bat species have been discovered in Haiti-- the "Macleay’s mustached bat" (Pteronotus macleayii), and the "hoary bat" (Lasiurus cinereus) pictured below. Haiti, one of the most environmentally imperiled countries in the tropics, now increases its tally of current bat species from 18 to 20.

The finding, part of a study by a Museum-led research team, includes the first-ever documentation of bat species in Trouing Jean Paul, a rich fossil deposit in a limestone sinkhole in the mountains of southeastern Haiti.
