Because of taxonomic difficulty with southern South American Myotis, the systematic status and distribution of M. levis remains unresolved. At the center of discussion is whether M. levis occurs in Paraguay. We report the occurrence of M. levis in Paraguay and substantiate our findings with comparative phenotypic and morphometric data for southern South American Myotis. This record closes a geographic gap for this species, whose distribution now includes parts of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay.
