Although Tadarida brasiliensis is one of the most widely distributed species of bats in Argentina, it is nevertheless extremely scarce in Patagonia. We report a second record of T. brasiliensis for Santa Cruz province, which fills a gap in the geographical distribution of this species in that province and is also the third southernmost record for the species and for any molossid bat in the world.
