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


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]
