Chris, I have checked my IDs of the bats with Fiona Reid (so you can be more confident in these than if they were just my opinion). From left to right
First two: Greater White-lined Bat / Jamaican Fruit-eating Bat
3th and 4th : Jamaican Fruit-eating Bat / Carollia species (probably perspicillata)
Fifth and sixth: Greater White-lined Bat / Glossophoga soricina
Last picture: The two orange bats are Natalus mexicanus. Not so sure of the two grey ones… probably the same species and perhaps juveniles
Thanks Jon I really appreciate that. I got three species correct! The last picture was taken at the bat cave at Calakmul. I have read there are 8 species there but I photographed dozens of individuals, all of which appeared to be Natalus mexicanus.
