Velandia-Perilla, Jorge HoracioGarcés-Restrepo, Mario Fernando

We confirm the presence of the bat Nyctinomops laticaudatus in southwestern Colombia, by the record of a colony of the species in the urban area of the town of Cartago municipality, Valle del Cauca department, at a 950 m elevation. This new record supports the distribution of the species in the geographic valley of the Cauca River and in southwestern Colombia, where it was previously regarded as hypothetical.(AU)
