Abstract

Cynomops planirostris (Peters, 1866) was previously known in Argentina only from the provinces of Salta and Jujuy in the northwest and in Misiones in the northeast. Here, we newly report this species from the province of Corrientes and the Humid Chaco ecoregion. We also offer information on the natural history of the species and on the bat assemblage present in the study area. This record increases the number of species of bats known in Corrientes to 34.
