The greater mouse-eared bat, Myotis myotis Borkhausen, is recorded from Syria and Lebanon and a new subspecies is described, type locality 2 km east of Amchite, Lebanon. This bat exists together with the lesser mouse-eared bat, Myotis blythi Tomes, in certain localities in Syria and Lebanon. The forms M. m. omari Thomas (type locality Derbent, Iran) and M. m. risorius Cheesman (type locality Shiraz, Iran) are considered to be races of M. blythi Tomes, and it is considered likely that risorius is a synonym of omari.
