Description Bats are one of the least studied groups of vertebrates in Chile; however, in recent years the knowledge about them has advanced significantly due to the implementation of bioacoustics methods as well as by the recent inclusion of bats in environmental impact studies. Here we update the list of Chilean bats, raising to 13 the number of previously known species. In addition to updating the taxonomic status, incorporating a new species record for the country, also some ecological and behavioral information is presented, including significant extensions of the geographic ranges of several species. Finally, we identify and propose some directions for future research to be developed in the country that will allow deepening the knowledge of this group of mammals.
Los murciélagos son uno de los grupos de vertebrados menos estudiados en Chile; sin embargo, durante los últimos años su conocimiento ha ido avanzado significativamente debido a la implementación del método bioacústico y a la reciente inclusión de los murciélagos en estudios de impacto ambiental. En este trabajo se actualiza la lista de murciélagos de Chile, elevando a 13 el número de especies presentes en el país. Junto con la actualización del status taxonómico de algunas especies y la incorporación de un nuevo registro para el país, se presenta información relevante sobre aspectos ecológicos y conductuales, así como ampliaciones de sus rangos de distribución. Finalmente, se identifican y proponen algunas direcciones futuras de investigación, a desarrollar a nivel nacional, que permitan profundizar en el conocimiento de este grupo de mamíferos.
