Researchers characterized the body shapes and compared the DNA of 242 dog-faced bats in museum collections across Europe and the Americas. Armed with this evidence, along with field observations that included sound recordings, they added two new species, the Freeman’s dog-faced bat (Cynomops freeman) and the Waorani dog-faced bat (C. tonkigui).
