Abstract

This paper presents the rediscovery of Van Hasselt’s Mouse-eared Bat Myotis hasseltii after nearly 50 years and its genetic data from Hanoi, northern Vietnam. In addition, a snapshot of the impacts of urbanization on the current distribution and conservation status of this native bat species in Hanoi is also provided.
