 Abstract: Horseshoe bats of the Rhinolophus maclaudi species group were recently revised by Fahr et al. (2002). Known members of the group are located in the mountainous region of West Africa and the Albertine Rift, east of the Congo River basin with a major gap (4300 km) between the two recognized sub-groups. Here we describe two additional species within this species group from the Albertine Rift center of endemism in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. One derives from the Misotschi-Kabogo highlands, a heretofore poorly documented region half-way down the western shore of Lake Tanganyika. Additional bat records from this locality are also documented. The second new taxon was collected in Kahuzi-Biega National Park, a World Heritage Site adjacent to the shore of Lake Kivu.
