The northern long-eared bat (Nyctophilus daedalus) is a species of vesper bat. The northern long-eared bat occurs in northern Australia, ranging from western Queensland, the northern part of the Northern Territory and northern Western Australia (Pilbara and Kimberly). High levels of morphological variation within Nyctophilus daedalus indicates that it is a composite of a number of distinct forms.
