Diclidurus scutatus Peters, 1869, is known from Venezuela, Guyana, Surinam, French Guiana, Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru. In Peru D. scutatus was previously known from a single specimen without a specific locality. Here we report the first record of D. scutatus from a known locality for Peru. We also provide an updated distribution map for the species.
