Abstract: In 2020 and 2022, eight Murina bats were captured in Wuyishan National Park, Fujian Province, China using harp traps. All specimens are small-sized with tubular nostrils and smooth auricles with elongated and pointed tragus. Two of the bats have gray-black dorsal fur and slightly swollen skulls exhibiting a well-defined concavity in the interorbital region and an underdeveloped sagittal crest, which are consistent with those of Murina feae. The other bats have brown dorsal fur with gold-tipped guard hair and inflated skulls, showing a distinct concavity in the interorbital region, which are characteristic of Murina eleryi. The identification of the bats was confirmed through phylogenetic inferences based on nuclear gene recombination activation gene Ⅱ (Rag2) and mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit Ⅰ gene (COI) fragments. Our records represent the first discovery of M. feae and M. eleryi in Fujian Province, China. M. feae is thus recorded in Guangxi, Guizhou, Guangdong, Jiangxi, Yunnan, and Fujian provinces, while M. eleryi is found in Guangxi, Guizhou, Hunan, Guangdong, Yunnan, Hainan, and Fujian provinces.
