The Jamaican red bat (Lasiurus degelidus) is a species of vesper bat. It is endemic to Jamaica.

Habitat[edit]

This is one of the poorest known species of bats on Jamaica. No specimens have been recorded from within caves or near caves so this appears to be a tree-roosting bat. It is caught over water.[citation needed]
