Salim Aliâ€™s Fruit Bat Latidens salimalii is an IUCN Red listed Endangered species known only from a few locations in southern India.Â Here we report three records of Latidens salimalii from the Valparai plateau and Anamalai Tiger Reserve in Tamil Nadu where this species has not been previously recorded.Â This bat was caught in riparian habitats close to or inside intact tropical wet forest in the Western Ghats.Â
