Abstract

An adult, male Dasypterus intermedius (Northern Yellow Bat) was captured at a shipyard on 12 October 2018 in Pascagoula, Jackson County, MS. This specimen represents the first Northern Yellow Bat documented from Mississippi since 1937. Mass of the bat was 17.5 g, forearm length was 50 mm, and hind-foot length was 9.5 mm. The specimen was found dehydrated and was rehabilitated at Possum Hill Wildlife Rehabilitation and Bat Education Center. The bat was kept over winter and released 5 km west of the capture site on 4 May 2019.
