Abstract: Two new species of bats (Pteronotus personatus and Cynomops mexicanus) are reported for the state of Yucatán. Fifteen species from 11 gerera and 5 families were identified through echolocation recordings in two grassland sites of the state of Yucatán. 


Keywords: Chiroptera, bats, echolocation, Pteronotus personatus and Cynomops mexicanus, Yucatán.


Palabras clave: Chiroptera, murciélagos, ecolocalización, Pteronotus personatus and Cynomops mexicanus, Yucatán.
