Abstract

Variation in color and mensural characters, ascribed as diagnostic in the original descriptions of the subspecies of Myotis austroriparius, are of no value in assigning specimens to infraspecific taxa. Variation in this species is non-clinal; the species appears to be comprised of a mosaic of demes. Therefore, it should be considered monotypic.
