Here I report the first record of the bat Molossus molossus in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, northeastern Brazil. A colony of this species was recorded in the urban area of Lagoa Salgada, in the attic of a building. In January 2014, I captured 90 individuals of M. molossus using mist nets around the roost. The present record extends the distribution of M. molossus to far-northeastern Brazil and adds a new marginal occurrence site for this species.
