NatureServe Conservation Status
Rounded Global Status Rank: G1 - Critically Imperiled
Reasons: Small range confined to southern Florida; natural habitat has been lost, but this bat uses Spanish tile roofs for roost sites and may colonize newly installed bat houses of appropriate design; may be more abundant than available information indicates; better information on distribution and abundance is needed.
Intrinsic Vulnerability: Highly vulnerable
Comments: This bat exhibits low fecundity (individual females produce only one young at a time).
