Balantiopteryx infusca is only known from two locations in Ecuador: Cachabí and Lita, and there hasn't been done either scientific or conservation work in both sites. The Lita tunnels are no longer functional for rail traffic, however, ecotourism activities and pedestrian traffic could be affecting the welfare of this population. It is imperative to declare the Lita tunnels as an Important Area for Bat Conservation.
