Abstract

The big red bat, Lasiurus egregius, was known from only four localities in Panama, French Guiana, and Brazil. I report a fifth locality from eastern Honduras, extending the known range >1,200 km to the northwest, well into Central America. On 9 May 1998, I captured one male and one female in a mist net near Guayabo de Catacamas, Olancho, Honduras. Both specimens were caught over water. The female was lactating and the male was reproductively inactive. This brings the total number of specimens of L. egregius to six worldwide.
