A taxonomic review of four Myotis species (M. formosus tsuensis , M. macrodactylus, M. daubentonii ussuriensis and M. nattereri bombinus) belonging to the Vespertilionidae was carried out. based on the external and skeletal (cranium, mandible and humerus ) morphology. The queston whether M. nattereri inhabiting Korea and eastern Siberia is a good separate subspecies (M. nattereri amurensis ) or a synonym of M. nattereri bombinus has remained unsolved. Through a detaile dexaminatin of Koreaan and Japanese speciemens, the author follows the concept of Wallin (1969) who has regarded M. nattereri amurensis as a synonym for M. nattereri bombinus.
