The blunt-eared bat (Tomopeas ravus) is a species of bat in the family Molossidae. It is monotypic within the genus Tomopeas and subfamily Tomopeatinae. It is endemic to Peru. It is threatened by habitat loss.

The classification of the Blunt-eared Bat has historically been problematic; many authors placed it in the family Vespertilionidae, while others preferred the Molossidae. However, it is now universally placed as the only member of subfamily Tomopeatinae of family Molossidae.
