Abstract
We report on the first capture and photographs of the Northern Ghost Bat, Diclidurus albus Wied-Neuwied, 1820, from Nicaragua, based on one individual from the Reserva Silvestre Privada Refugio Bartola, department of Río San Juan, southeastern Nicaragua. We provide basic morphological measurements of the individual as well as a distribution map of previous visual sightings and acoustic recordings of this species from Nicaragua.
