Range Description

This species occurs in Australia where it is present in along to coast from Victoria to south-east Queensland, and near Nildottie on the River Murray in South Australia (Duncan et al. 1999). It is found in the Kimberley of Western Australia (A. Burbidge pers. comm.). Populations previously identified as Myotis moluccarum (or called M. adversus) in Australia, and at least one of the records from New Guinea, have been shown to be M. macropus (Cooper et al. 2001). Given the disjunct range with M. moluccarum on islands west of New Guinea, it is possible that the Myotis populations in eastern New Guinea, and eastwards in the Melanesian islands may also all be M. macropus (or one or more other species). This species is known from sea level to 840 m, but most records below 300 m in Victoria at least (L. Lumsden pers. comm.).
