Abstract

As a product of recent studies, we document the presence of seven new bat species for the chiropterofauna of Nicaragua: Mimon cozumelae, Natalus lanatus, Perimyotis subflavus, Lasiurus cinereus, Lasiurus intermedius, Eptesicus brasiliensis and Nyctinomops laticaudatus. In this work, we verify the presence of four other species: Mormoops megalophylla, Phylloderma stenops, Thyroptera tricolor and Furipterus horrens, included in the latest list of mammals of the country (Medina-Fitoria and Saldaña, 2012) but not supported by a scientific publication. Our work also confirms the presence of Cyttarops alecto, Lasiurus ega, Eptesicus fuscus and Antrozous dubiaquercus in the country, species currently represented by only one record in Nicaragua. In addition, the herein newly reported records of Perymiotis subflavus and Furipterus horrens constitute an extension in its distribution. This work updates the diversity of bats of Nicaragua to 61 genera and 108 species.
