Abstract:Two bat speciments (1♀,1♂) were collected in Lianzhou of Guangdong province on September 24, 1984. The two specimens were large , whose length of head and body were individually 92.0 mm and 85.0 mm, and forearm length 73.2 mm and 73.0 mm, and the greatest length of skull 24.68 mm and 23.97 mm. The ending of their tails had few long hair, and their skulls were narrow. According to comparison with the speciment of Taphozous melanopogon which we had collected and Taphozous theobaldi whose characteristics had been reported, the two bat speciments can be identified as Taphozous theobaldi, which are a new record of bat species in Guangdong province.
