Abstract

The genus Dermanura currently comprises 11 species, four of which occur in Brazil. Dermanura anderseni was previously recorded only in the Amazon and Cerrado biomes. Here, we expand the known geographic distribution of D. anderseni over 1000 km eastwards for the Atlantic Forest biome. We captured an adult male specimen in mist-nets set at ground level in the Caju Private Natural Heritage Reserve, Itaporanga D’Ajuda, Sergipe State, northeastern Brazil. Owing to their similarities in external morphology, D. anderseni may be easily mistaken for Dermanura cinerea. Thus, considering that D. cinerea is one of the most common species in the Atlantic Forest of northeastern Brazil, we are alert for the possibility of misidentified specimens in zoological collections.
