Kobayashi's bat (Eptesicus kobayashii) is a species of bat. An adult Kobayashi's bat has a body length of 6.0-6.3 cm, a tail length of 4.6-4.8 cm, and a wing length of 4.5-4.7 cm. The species is found only on the Korean Peninsula; it has been suggested that it may actually be a local form of Eptesicus bottae, Botta's serotine.
