Mammal data and material were collected during a short stay in the People's Democratic Republic of Laos in the winter of 1993-1994. Most data are from the southern Sekong Province and the northwestern Hongsa Special Zone, from where practically nothing has been previously reported. Many localities are new, and add to our knowledge of species distributions. Of particular interest are Megaerops niphanae and Taphozous saccolaimus, which are reported from Laos for the first time ; some new localities for Pygathrix nemaeus ; two new records of Prionodon pardicolor ; reports on Panthera tigris and Nemorhaedus sumatraensis ; and records of Leopoldamys edwardsi and L. sabanus, Maxomys moi, Berylmys bowersii which is new for the Sekong Province region, and Niviventer cf. tenaster which is new for Laos.
