Summary Rank: H

This species is a solitary tree roosting bat and is only occassionally found in or on the sides of buildlings.  This species is rare in CO and most specimens have been collected on the eastern plains in deciduous woodland habitat, although irrigation has increased available habitat perhaps facilitating the movement of more LABO throughout the state (Fitzgerald et al. 1994).
