Abstract


We recorded two individuals of Lasiurus blossevillii for the State of Acre, in the municipality of Xapuri, boundary with Bolivia. Two adult specimens, a female and a male, were caught in the Agro-extractive Settlement Project Chico Mendes (PAECM) in August 2014 and December 2015, by using mist-nets installed at ground level. The morphometric characteristics are consistent with the literature, ensuring the precise taxonomic identification of the specimens. This study increases to five the number of records of this species to the legal Amazon.
