The Yuma myotis (Myotis yumanensis) is a small bat (3 - 5 g) found in western North America from Mexico to British Columbia. This pale-colored bat is found in pinyon-juniper forests and riparian areas of semi-desert valleys. In Colorado, they can be found along the western and southeastern lowland scrublands, usually before 8,000 ft.
