Hipposideros galeritus Cantor, 1846 has been hitherto reported from 18 localities in peninsular India. In this paper we report 3 new locality records of the species from Karnataka and 1 new record from Andhra Pradesh, based on photographic evidence and morphometrics (external morphological and cranio-dental). These records extend the southeastern limit of the known geographic location of the species by about 430 km in Karnataka State.
