The summer status of the endangered bat Myotis sodalis was assessed in Iowa from 1980-1983. Bats were mist-netted at 35 sites in 16 counties and we captured 1199 individuals representing 9 species. In southern counties, a total of 67 M. sodalis was captured, including 39 reproductive females, 14 nonreproductive females, 12 juveniles, and 2 adult males. Myotis keenii was found throughout the state, but Nycticeius humeralis was most abundant in southern Iowa. Lasionycteris noctivagans was caught as far south as the bottom tier of Iowa counties, and Pipistrellus subflavus was less abundant in central and western Iowa than anticipated.
