A new species of molossid bat of the genus Molossops is described from Suriname. The new species is a member of the subgenus Molossops where it is distinguished from the other two member species, temminckii and aequatorianus, by larger external and cranial size. A single specimen of the species was taken in northern Suriname in an area of savannah and secondary forest.
