Abstract:

Three survey datasheets were used to record bat observations and swab samples at Minnetonka Cave, Bear Lake County, Idaho, on 23 May 2016. A Spring Emergence Survey Datasheet was used only to record site information; a USGS NWHC Individual Specimen Collection Datasheet was used to record the sex and species of seven individual bats, lack of wing damage, and swab vial numbers; and a Fungal Skin Flora Project—Swab Sampling Datasheet was used to note absence of visible fungus and note another swab vial number for the seven individual bats. These bats represent two species: little brown myotis and long-eared myotis.
