We evaluate the occurrence of S. bakeri in Colombia, a recently described species. We report seven new records and include data on skull measurements of these individuals and information on the new localities. A discriminant analysis suggests that condyloincisive length and dentary length are the most important measurements to separate S. bakeri and S. luisi from S. lilium. However, to distinguish S. bakeri from S. luisi, we used discrete characters proposed in the original descriptions of these two taxa. Sturnira bakeri should no longer be considered a regionally endemic species from Ecuador and Peru.
