dc.description.abstract Bat distributions are still comparatively poorly known in Africa and updated national species lists do not exist for many countries. We present a revised checklist of the bats of Swaziland, which includes seven species not previously listed. Of these, two species are recent additions (Mops midas and Myotis bocagii) and these records marginally extend their known distributional range. A total of 26 species of bats are now known from the country, but additional surveys are predicted to add more taxa to the list. These new records predominantly come from human-modified landscapes, underscoring the importance of further surveys in such transformed habitats. en_ZA
