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

A bat of open country; probably not found in cities but may be on town outskirts. Forages along cliffs, rock outcrops, and dry slopes in arid valleys and badlands. Roosts in cliff cavities, boulders, vertical banks, the ground, talus slopes, and under rocks. Several records away from the deep canyons suggest that this species is not as closely tied to lakes and rivers as most of the other bats in the Columbia Basin.

All steppe zones were core; peripheral in Ponderosa Pine and Oak zones. Good habitats were non-forested, bare ground, dryland agriculture, rivers, and lakes.
