Abstract : A considerable number of bats were collected from indicated source regions together with ground deposits of droppings in nest areas and their associated ectoparasites. Survey techniques were established. Problems of operation encountered are discussed, including sensitivity of bats to change in climate and altitude on transportation from low, tropical source to laboratories in Bogota. Organisms isolated: T.cruzi, T.rangeli; Sporotrichum schenckii, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Microsporum canis, M.gypseum, Scopulariopsis brevicaulis, S.brumptii, S.fimicola, Cryptococcus neoformons.
