Herein we present a list of bat species in a gradient of physiognomies, from the Cerrado to the Caatinga and to the Atlantic Forest, between Tocantins and Bahia, two of the most poorly bat-sampled regions in Brazil. A total of 30 species (26 for Bahia and 13 for Tocantins), were recorded. We report, for the first time, two species of bats from Tocantins: Anoura geoffroyi (Phyllostomidae) and Cynomops planirostris (Molossidae). Our study increases to 41 the number of bat species for the Caatinga of Bahia, including two new formal reports for this region (Artibeus fimbriatus and Molossus rufus).
