The specimen comes from the El Cacao Lagoon. It was assigned to the species L. ega based in unique morphological characteristics as the color, teeth, total size and forearm size. Considering the little information that we have in Honduras about the Chiroptera group, is recommended to make systematics studies on this order nationwide
