Godman’s Trident Bat (Triaenops goodmani)

Goodman’s Trident Bat was described in 2007; it is known from subfossil remains that were recovered from the Grotte d’Anjohibe in the former Mahajanga Province in northern Madagascar.

The species apparently lived in sympatry with several other bat species, including the congeneric Menamena Trident Bat (Triaenops menamena Goodman & Ranivo), which still survives until today.

Goodman’s Trident Bat apparently disappeared at the beginning of the Holocene.
