Gregorin, Renato

A survey of the Chiropteran collection of the Museu de Zoologia of the Universidade de São Paulo (MZUSP) revealed the presence of two specimens of Chiroderma doriae (MZUSP 28591 and 28688) from Barma farm, Brasilândia, state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil (21 35 S and 52 07 W) (Figure 1). Specimens were collected by J. L. Silva Filho in November of 1992. These distribution records extend the geographic range of C. doriae Westward. Specimens from Brasilândia, both female, are paler and browner than those from Iguape, southern coast of the state of São Paulo. Some morphometrical data (in millimeters) of the specimens MZUSP 28688 and 28591 are, respectively: head and body 77, 72; forearm 52, 55; greatest length of skull 20.5, 29; condylo-incisor length 26.5, 26; postorbital constriction 6.4, 6.4; zygomatic breadth 18.3, 18.5; mastoid breadth 13.9, 14; length of mandible 19.8, 19.3.
