Abstract

A new species within the genus Lasiurus is proposed from 3 specimens collected in the coastal desert and western slopes of southwestern Peru. Based on molecular and morphological evidence, the new species is related to Lasiurus reddish species (i.e., L. atratus, L. castaneus, L. blossevillii, and L. varius). Cytochrome b genetic divergence between the new species and the other species of the genus was high (> 9.4%). This new species, endemic to Peru, increases the known diversity of Lasiurus to 20 species.
