A rare species of free-tailed bat, <i>Tadarida latouchei</i>, was found on Kuchinoerabu-jima Island of the Osumi group, northern Ryukyu Islands, Japan; the second record of the species from Japan. In addition to the description of the newly collected specimen, we examined relationships among this species and two other closely related species, <i>T. insignis</i> and <i>T. teniotis</i>, on the basis of univariate and multivariate analyses of morphometric characters. External and skull characters, with the exception of tail and tibia lengths, showed no substantial range overlap between <i>T. latouchei</i> and <i>T. insignis</i> or <i>T. teniotis</i>, and these characters in <i>T. latouchei</i> were significantly smaller than those in either <i>T. insignis</i> or <i>T. teniotis</i>, confirming <i>T. latouchei</i>'s independence at the specific level. This view is supported further by its relatively short dorsal hairs, thin and roundish ear and large upper anterior premolar.
