Abstract: The fruit bats Carollia perspicillata and Sturnira tildae (Phyllostomidae) were observed feeding on ripe fruits of Solanaceous plants, Solanum grandiflorum and S. asperum, in the region of Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil. These observations were made between the end of July and the beginning of August, 1978, 1979 and 1981. S. grandiflorum and S. asperum are very common plants in open spaces and paths in the forest. Features of these plant species relevant to dispersal are described. Observations of the feding behavior of bats on ripe fruits showed that these plant species can be considered chirop-terochorous, fitting well within the bat-fruit syndrome. Carollia perspicillata relevant to dispersal are described. Observations of the feeding behavior of Solanum grandiflorum and S. asperum in the Manaus region.
