Herein we describe the first records of Molossops neglectus for the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil. The records are based on 3 specimens captured in the municipalities of Chapecó and São Domingos, in the western portion of the state. Considering that M. neglectus is an infrequent species in field surveys, new data on its geographical range is important to better understand the biology and ecology of M. neglectus.
