Abstract

Myotis albescens (É. Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, 1806) is a vespertilionid bat commonly called the silver-tipped myotis. A small bat with unique frosting of the hair dorsally and ventrally, it is 1 of about 100 species of Myotis worldwide and 1 of 12 species of Myotis in South America. It is one of the most widely distributed species in the genus occurring from southern Mexico to Argentina in diverse habitats generally at elevations below 500 m. It is not of special conservation status, but is rare or uncommon in many areas.
