We report on the occurrence of Choeroniscus godmani (Thomas, 1903) in Brazil and Panama. The Panama record fills a distribution gap for the species in Central America. The three records from Brazil are from the Amazonia in the state of Pará, and from the Cerrado and an Amazonia/Cerrado ecotone in the state of Mato Grosso. At two localities in Brazil, C. minor, a larger species of Choeroniscus, was also recorded. These new records extend the distribution of C. godmani by 2,065 km south to central South America. One of the Brazilian specimens represents the first record of supernumerary incisors in C. godmani.
