Abstract

Myotis simus Thomas, 1901, is a vespertilionid bat commonly called the velvety myotis. A small to medium-sized bat with the plagiopatagium attached at ankles and short (≤5 mm), woolly fur, it is 1 of about 100 species of Myotis worldwide and 1 of 15 South American species of Myotis. It is endemic to South America, occurring from Colombia and northern Brazil southward to Paraguay and northeastern Argentina in both terra firme and floodplain areas in lowland forest and savanna at elevations from 28 to 600 m. It is not of special conservation concern.
