The structure of baculum in Myotis myotis and Myotis blythi (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) from Turkey
A comparison was made of the shape and size of the bacula of 32 Myotis myotis (Borkhausen, 1797) and 26 Myotis blythi (Tomes, 1857) collected from Turkey. It was determined that baculum size does not distinguish the two species but baculum shape distinguishes them.
