Absolutely correct, Bayucca! Rhynchonycteris naso as kind of "striped" forearms, have a look at some pictures here:

@Afribats: As I remember Rhynchonycteris naso looks very similar, but has somehow "striped" legs. Is that correct or are there any other criteria to separate them? Any interesting links? Thanks!

Either Saccopteryx bilineata or S. leptura.
