Myotis chiloensis (Waterhouse, 1838), the Chilean myotis, is found only in Argentina and Chile, where it is the most common bat species in the southern part of Chile. It is a small insectivorous bat and differs from other members of the genus because of its darker pelage. It uses human buildings and caves to establish colonies, and forages in dense forests of Nothofagus to capture insects, thereby providing ecosystem services to agriculture and forestry. M. chiloensis is considered of “Least Concern” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources.
