Myotis myotis Borkhausen, 1797: 80   .

COMMON NAME. — Greater Myotis   .

CURRENT NAME. — Myotis myotis Borkhausen, 1797   .

See Simmons (2005: 512) and Moratelli & Burgin (2019: 977).

COLLECTOR/S. — Charles-Alexandre Lesueur. COLLECTION LOCALITY. — Europe. COLLECTION DATE. — No data. SPECIMEN NUMBER/ S. — Referred to below. MNHN-ZM-MO-1983-1482 ( Fig. 53 View FIG ), non-type male, preserved in alcohol   ; MNHN-ZM-MO-1983-1483 ( Fig. 54 View FIG ), non-type female, preserved in alcohol   ; and MNHN-ZM-AC-A6887 ( Fig. 55 View FIG ), non-type skull   .

OTHER NUMBERS/S. — CAG I-582.

ILLUSTRATIONS. — Illustrated by Charles-Alexandre Lesueur – Muséum d’Histoire naturelle du Havre, Inv. no. 80042 ( Fig. 167 View FIG ; centre, living animals). Illustration is unnamed by Baglione & Crémière (2016: 358-359) but may be this species. The bat to the right in Figure 167 View FIG may represent either Myotis myotis   or Myotis dasycneme ( Boie 1825) (See Moratelli & Burgin 2019: 955)   .

COMMENTS. — Skull MNHN-ZM-AC-A6887 appears to be this species as judged from Fig. 56 View FIG (H. Parnaby pers. comm.). The associated label refers to Vespertilio murinus Schreber, 1774: 165   , a synonym of M. myotis   (see Ellerman & Morrison-Scott 1966). Information related to specimen MNHN-ZM-AC-A6887 notes that “Voyage aux terres australes de Péron et Lesueur, mais peut-être d’Europe” (inscription in Catalogue des anciennes galeries – Anatomie comparée). The label of this specimen states “ Vespertilio murinus   (schreb) des Terres Australes par Péron”. It is therefore probable that the specimen could be a Myotis   and not from Australia.
