Abstract

We report 7 species of free-tailed bats (Family Molossidae) from a single locality in the state of Durango, México. Three (Molossops greenhalli, Molossus molossus, Nyctinomops laticaudatus) are recorded for the first time in the state, whereas the remaining 4 (Eumops perotis, Molossus ater, Nyctinomops macrotis, Tadarida brasiliensis) represent considerable range extensions. The high diversity of bats found in the San Juan de Camarones region evinces its priority for protection and conservation efforts.
