The presence of bats of the endemic West Indian genus Brachyphylla in the Caicos Islands, in the Bahama archipelago, is reported for the first time. Notes on habits, habitat, reproduction, and morphological variation are presented. Inter-island variation among all nominal taxa in the genus is discussed; one species (B. cavernarum) and four subspecies are recognized.
