Myotis fimbriatus is a species of vesper bat in the family Vespertilionidae. It is found only in China. It's also called the fringed long-footed myotis. The fringed long-footed myotis is described as having short, thick, brown fur with pale whitish fur ventrally.[5] A captured female was measured with ears that were 14.4 mm long, a forearm 42.2 mm long, and a weight of 9.9 grams.[5] Myotis fimbriatus is listed as being of least concern by the IUCN as of 2008. In 2000, Myotis fimbriatus was listed as being "lower risk/near threatened".[1]
