The mastiff bat, Eumops perotis renatae, described by Pirlot in 1966 and later elevated to specific status by the same author is herein regarded as junior synonym of Eumops perotis perotis (Schinz, 1821). Earlier reports of large Eumops from South America are reviewed in light of the present understanding of the relationship between Eumops perotis and E. trurnbulli.
