One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A small brown myotis bat that typically flies low over water, found throughout Eurasia.
Myotis daubentonii, family Vespertilionidae
- ‘We studied Daubenton's bat Myotis daubentonii, which in the laboratory calls between 90 and 30 kHz, sometimes with a pulse repetition rate similar to that of male G. mellonella.’
- ‘She said the buildings and culvert were home to bats, including the relatively rare Daubenton's bat.’
- ‘The building and culverts are also thought to be the home for a number of bats, including the uncommon Daubenton's bat.’
- ‘McRae, who was bitten while handling a rare Daubenton's bat, remained in a ‘critical condition’ yesterday in Dundee's Ninewells Hospital.’
- ‘The warning is particularly aimed at anglers and walkers, as Daubenton's bats tend to live near rivers or canals.’
Late 19th century: named after Louis-Jean-Marie Daubenton (1716–1800), French naturalist and physician.
