Abstract:

We report the record of a canine tooth assignable to an undetermined species of Noctilio from the Middle Pleistocene of the Atlantic coast in central Argentina. This is the southernmost record for the genus and the first paleontological record of Noctilio in southern South America. In addition, this finding supports the hypothesis of an episodic warm climatic pulse suggested by other micromammals recovered from the same fossil-bearing levels.
