Similarities between 42 taxa of genus Myotis were studied based on 11 dental characters. The most primitive conditions were found in subgenus Leuconoe and in most taxa of subgenus Selysius. No clear differences between subgenera Leuconoe and Selysius were found. Only Myotis altarium, M. ikonnikovi, M, mystacinus, and M. hosonoi were found to be distinct from the 13 species studied within subgenus Selysius. The subgenus Myotis was distinct from the other subgenera in having the most derived conditions.
