Abstract: Few specimens of the hoary bat have been reported from Ohio in the past, but there are now records of adult bats from Cuyahoga, Franklin, Hamilton, Loraine, Ottawa, Portage, Ross and Wood Counties. Pregnant females and/or very young bats have been taken in several counties, indicating that the hoary bat breeds in Ohio. The birth of a hoary bat in Ohio during the middle of May is reported from Hamilton County. The earliest record for Lasiurus cinereus in Ohio is May 14 and the latest record, October 14. It is suggested that this bat may be more common in Ohio than previously supposed.
