Three specimens of Vampyrodes caraccioli were collected in Corupá and São Bento do Sul, in Santa Catarina state, increasing its geographic distribution extension by 170 km south. These specimens also represent the first record for the species in Santa Catarina. The knowledge about bats in Santa Catarina has increased in recent years, showing the need of basic studies about richness and diversity in different regions.
