Help wanted with Bat ID
Sorry about the poor photo, but does anyone know what species this is? It was photographed flying out from under a bridge, in the Brazilian Pantanal.
White-lined bats Saccopteryx sp. are pretty common out there and they often roost on tree stumps etc out in the open. Not sure if those white lines on the bat are real or some sort of blurring (and they also look a little bright to be the white lines of a white lined bat) but its a possibility

What size was it? If it was fairily large, it was a fishing bat. If it was small, probably Saccolaimus.
