Abstract

A new species in the genus Natalus is described on the basis of 71 specimens found in museum collections. The body pelage of the new bat is unique among natalids in having hair bases much darker than hair tips. This new species is also characterized by short tibiae, legs and feet notably hairy, a long braincase, and a shallow rostrum. This species is known from 16 localities in Mexico, from both mountain and lowland areas. At some localities, it has been collected together with the previously known species Natalus stramineus. This constitutes the 1st known case of sympatry among species of the genus Natalus (sensu stricto).
