The bats of East Texas.
In an attempt to document all records of bats collected in East Texas, we have examined 749 specimens from 29 counties. Also, the past two years, one of us (Weynand) studied the distribution of bats of a selected area in Newton County in extreme Eastern Texas. Information given herein indicates 12 species of bats, including collecting localities and the institutions where specimens are deposited. In addition, pertinent natural history information on bats from Newton County is presented.
