The first record of the long-legged myotis, Myotis volans interior, in North Dakota was reported by Jones and Genoways (Trans. Kansas Acad. Sci., 69:89, 1966) on the basis of a single male from 1 mi. S and 1 mi. W Medora, Billings County. On 25 May 1966, nine adult females (KU 106932-40) of this bat were obtained by Donald R. Johnson in Granville, McHenry County. These specimens extend the known geographic distribution of M. v. interior approximately 160 miles to the northeast from the previously reported North Dakotan locality and represent the northeastern most locality of record for the species in North America.
