SPECIES Myotis longipes

Author:Dobson, 1873.
Citation:Proc. Asiat. Soc. Bengal: 110.
Common Name:Kashmir Cave Myotis
Type Locality:India, Kashmir, Bhima Devi Caves, 6,000 ft. (1,829 m).
Distribution:Afghanistan, NE India, Nepal, possibly Vietnam.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) – Vulnerable.
Comments:Included in capaccinii by Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1951), but considered a distinct species by Hanák and Gaisler (1969), Corbet (1978c), and Bates and Harrison (1997). Some specimens referred to longipes by Bates and Harrison (1997) subsequently formed the type series for csorbai (Topál, 1997). Vietnamese records are dubious; see Bates et al. (1999).
