How much does a Gnome fruit-eating bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Gnome fruit-eating bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Gnome fruit-eating bat (Artibeus gnomus) on average weights 10 grams (0.02 lbs).

The Gnome fruit-eating bat is from the family Phyllostomidae (genus: Artibeus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 10.9 cm (0′ 5″).

As a reference: An average human weights in at 62 kg (137 lbs) and reaches an average size of 1.65m (5′ 5″). Humans spend 280 days (40 weeks) in the womb of their mother and reach around 75 years of age.

The gnome fruit-eating bat (Dermanura gnoma) is a bat species from South America. It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela. This species was originally discovered to be different from the other known species of fruit bats, but later, in 1994 were mistakenly grouped under Artibeus cinereus as a synonym. However, this has since been corrected by more closely studying their physical differences and by biomolecular analysis.
