Mimon cozumelae Goldman, 1914 is a poorly studied phyllostomid bat with occurrence records in Honduras dating from 17 years ago. During a survey from 13–22 September 2018 in the core of the Río Plátano Biosphere Reserve, northeastern Honduras, we captured two M. cozumelae in a sample of 43 individuals recognized in 11 bat species. These records represent the fifth and sixth localities of M. cozumelae in the country and the first record since 2001. We recommend that M. cozumelae be included in the conservation and management plan of the Río Plátano Biosphere Reserve and in the conservation lists of bats in Honduras.
