“Little Bentwing bats are small chocolate-brown insectivorous bats with a body length of 4.5 cm. The fur is long and thick, especially over the crown and around the neck. The bent tip of the wing is formed by a particularly long joint of the third finger”. A recent night survey on Sportsman Creek wildlife refuge used Harp trapping to capture and record (size and sex) for a number of these bats. They are listed as a Threatened  species on the Far North Coast due to increased use of pesticides and fragmentation of habitat.
