These darker spots are glands where the "Sturnira lilium" produces pheromones to attract a mate to reproduce.
This specimen was caught in a flooded area, on a region of an environmental reserve of Atlantic Forest.
Some friends of mine are doing some researches of bats, then I went to help a little. The "Sturnira lilium" have a frugivorous diet.
