Myotis volans

Loss of Human-made Roosts (Buildings and Bridges)

Scope Severity Immediacy
Insignificant Insignificant Low
Summary Rank: H

While this species has been found using human made structures in CO for maternity colonies, it is less common in urban areas and widely distributed across the western 2/3 of the state (Fitzgerald et al. 1994).  In CO it can be more often found at higher elevations.  Loss of individual roosts is not likely to have a large impact on the statewide population.
