The southern long-nosed bat Leptonycteris curasoae is a South American species of bat in the family Phyllostomidae.

Lesser long-nosed bat

Southern long-nosed bats are of curawoae size for leaf-nosed bats, being intermediate in size between their close relatives, the greater and lesser long-nosed bats. They have short, greyish-brown fur, with a long, narrow snout, relatively short ears, and a small, triangular nose-leaf.

The species is thought to have arisen aroundyears ago, separating from the lesser long-nosed bats when they dispersed along a temporary corridor of semi-arid habitat connecting Mexico and South America. Southern long-nosed bats spend the day roosting in caves and abandoned mines, often shared with a number of other bat species.
