Alexander, i don't know what the name of the bat Rafinesque collected in Audubon's house is. I've read several versions of the story including excerpts from Audubon's retelling of it and from biographies on Rafinesque. The more trustworthy sources do not claim Rafinesque definitely discovered a new species, only that he thought he did or that it was very possible he did. None of the sources I've seen name the bat. If you find the answer, feel free to post it here.
