| There are only three known specimens of the Flat-headed Myotis, all from mountain forests in northeastern Mexico. One was found roosting under the bark of a Douglas-fir tree. Myotis planiceps is a small bat with long, dark, silky fur and an unusually flat skull. This could be an adaptation to living in crevices.
Total Length: 76 mm; Tail: 25 mm
