Martin and Sneed [64] found one Myotis that they tentatively identified as an Indiana bat during an October survey of Lowery Cave, Chattooga County, Georgia. This cave serves as a bachelor roost for a colony of gray bats, Myotis grisescens, and may also serve as a significant roost for Indiana bat.
