          En este trabajo se reportan 37 nuevas localidades de distribución para 15 especies de murciélagos del norte de Argentina, pertenecientes a las familias Noctilionidae, Phyllostomidae, Vespertilionidae y Molossidae. Estos registros corresponden a 98 ejemplares procedentes de siete provincias (Catamarca, Corrientes, Entre Ríos, Jujuy, Misiones, Salta y Tucumán). Algunas localidades representan importantes extensiones para la distribución conocida de las especies. Se agregan siete especies a cuatro provincias (cuatro a Catamarca, una a Corrientes, una a Entre Ríos y una a Salta). Además, se agregan puntos de simpatría para Myotis levis y M. dinellii en la provincia de Entre Ríos, y se agregan tres especies (Noctilio leporinus, Eptesicus diminutus y Cynomops planirostris) a la escasamente muestreada franja latitudinal de 25º S, en la región de las Yungas.

          Translated abstract

          Thirty seven new localities are added to the distribution of 15 species of bats from northern Argentina (families Noctilionidae, Phyllostomidae, Vespertilionidae, and Molossidae). The new records, belonging to 98 specimens analyzed, were obtained during field works in the provinces of Catamarca, Corrientes, Entre Ríos, Jujuy, Misiones, Salta, and Tucumán. Some localities represent important extensions to the known distributional area of some species. We add seven species to four provinces (four to Catamarca, and one to the provinces of Corrientes, Entre Rios, and Salta). We also report information about the coexistence of Myotis levis and M. dinellii in the province of Entre Ríos, and add three species (Noctilio leporinus, Eptesicus diminutus and Cynomops planirostris) to the Yungas forests in the poorly sampled latitudinal band of 25º S latitude.

            Bats of the Argentine Yungas: a systematic and distributional analysis

            In this study we analyze the composition of bat species of the Argentine Yungas, where 39 species have been recorded, number that indicates a high diversity of bats for the region compared with the total number of species in the country (66% of the species from Argentina). For comparative purposes we have incorporated in the analysis a revision of the species of the Bolivian Yungas. Since the mid-1970's, intensive field studies and surveys have been carried out in numerous localities of the Yungas in Argentina. The information obtained from personal collecting, plus the examination of museum specimens and literature records, allowed us to examine a total of 1682 specimens. One noctilionid, 12 phyllostomids, 13 vespertilionids, and 13 molossids were recorded in the area. For every species we include the specimens examined, additional records, distribution, reproduction and also provide additional comments related to the biology of the species observed by us during fieldwork studies. Biogeographical analyses were made considering the presence or absence of each species by degree of latitude along latitudinal gradients. The Yungas of Argentina was also compared with that of Bolivia and with other phytogeographic provinces, such as Chaco, Monte, Andean, and Paranaense regions, located at the same latitudinal range as the Yungas in Argentina.

              New records of bat ectoparasites (Diptera, Hemiptera and Siphonaptera) from northern Argentina

              New species of bat-ectoparasite insects are added to the fauna of Argentina and distributional limits are extended for others, based on information obtained from 21 species of bats collected. New data is reported for the distribution of 23 species of bat ectoparasites, of which 17 belong to the Order Diptera [14 Streblidae: Anastrebla caudiferae Wenzel, Anatrichobius scorzai Wenzel, Aspidoptera phyllostomatis (Perty), Megistopoda aranea (Coquillett), M. proxima (Sèguy), Metelasmus pseudopterus Coquillett, Noctiliostrebla aitkeni Wenzel, N. dubia (Rudow), Paradyschiria fusca Speiser, Paradyschiria sp., Strebla chrotopteri Wenzel, Strebla diaemi Wenzel, Trichobius parasiticus Gervais y Xenotrichobius noctilionis Wenzel, and three Nycteribiidae: Basilia carteri Scott, B. plaumanni Scott y B.neamericana Schuurmans Stekhoven (Jr)], three belong to the Order Siphonaptera [one Ischnopsyllidae: Myodopsylla isidori (Weyenbergh), one Tungidae: Rhynchopsyllus pulex Haller, and one Stephanocircidae: Craneopsylla m. minerva (Rothschild)] and three belong to Order Hemiptera [two Polyctenidae: Hesperoctenes fumarius (Westwood) and H. vicinus Jordan, and one Cimicidae: Latrocimex spectans Lent]. Some records are new for Argentina, while others are new for the provinces of Corrientes, Chaco, Entre Ríos, Jujuy, Misiones and Salta. Also new host-parasite relationships are reported.
