Specimens of the genus Promops (Chiroptera, Molossidae) are rare in Colombian scientific collections. Only one species, P. centralis, has been documented from the country. We report the first record of P.nasutus for Colombia, collected on the Eastern Cordillera of the Andes. External and cranial measurements, as well as morphological features in our specimen match those of P. nasutus. Our record of P. nasutus also represents a geographic extension in the distribution of the species of more than 755 km west from the closest known location in the Venezuelan Amazon.
