The tube-nosed bat of the genus Harpiola was for the first time captured in Vietnam. The animal was caught into mist net in Ngoc Ling Mountains at the elevation of 2250m. This is the first record of Harpiola from Asian mainland eastward of India. Comparison of external characters, dental features and measurements with published data reveal considerable sinilarity between Vietnamese specimen and H. isodon from Taiwan. Talonids of the first two lower molars of Vietnamese specimen demostrate myotodont type of structure.
