Abstract


We document a new locality of Diaemus youngi in the Cerrado biome, extend the distribution in Mato Grosso do Sul state (southwestern Brazil), and present the first record of a vampire bat species from the state’s capital, Campo Grande. We recorded one male adult in an urban remnant of Cerrado. There are few locality data for this species in the Cerrado biome and our report significantly adds to the knowledge of this species’ distribution within the state and throughout Brazil.
