Mensagem:  Vi numa gramática:

While using Present Perfect the time-frame may be indicated explicitly by an adjunct indicating ‘time-up-to-now’.

Such expressions include:
      before
      during/in the last x minutes/hours/ weeks/years/etc.
      in my life
      lately
      over the last x months/years
      recently
      so far
      this week/month/year/century
      to date
      today
      up to/till/until now 
 
Alligators have killed only nine people in NY in the last half-century. (in the fifty years up to the time of writing).

A questao é por que "in the last night" é usada com o past simple????

Any native here?? Shed some light on this!!!
