Abstract

The northern long-eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis) has been a common insectivorous bat in much of eastern North America, including Arkansas, which is located near the southwestern edge of its range. While this species is expected to occur throughout the Ozarks and Ouachita Mountains, it has only been previously documented in 19 of 75 Arkansas counties (Harvey and McDaniel 1983, Saugey et al. 1989, Sealander and Heidt 1990, Saugey et al. 1993, Wilhide et al. 1998a, Tumlison et al. 2002, Sasse and Saugey 2008).
