by a deep angular notch. Horizontal horseshoe-shaped nose-leaf not concealing the sides of the muzzle, finely crenate along its outer free margin; vertical process of the sella long, diminishing gradually in width from the base upwards, its anterior surface thus presenting the form of an isosceles triangle with a narrowly rounded-ofi vertical angle; the upper edge of the posterior connecting-process forms a narrow subacute projection, scarcely exceeding the summit of the anterior process of the sella; posterior nose-leaf long, its terminal process shaped like the vertical process of the sella (Plate VII. fig. 8). Lower lip with a single vertical groove.

Wings from the ankles; interfemoral membrane angular behind, the extreme tip of the tail alone projecting.
