Metadata (Data about data or how the map was made)

The Long-eared Myotis is generally distributed throughout Washington but is probably most common in east-side forests. This is the most abundant bat in Lodgepole Pine forests in Washington. It occurs in humid coastal forests to semi-arid short-grass prairie, but is probably limited to water courses in arid regions. It roosts in a variety of places including trees, buildings, and caves. It feeds on both airborne insects and by gleaning.

All forest and steppe zones were core. In forested zones, all habitats were good except bare ground and mid- to high-density development. In steppe zones, water/wetlands were good. In both forested and steppe zones, low-density development was adequate.
