Caption

White nose syndrome in bats. Wing of a little brown bat (Myotis lucifugus) with white nose syndrome (WNS). This deadly infection with the fungus Geomyces destructans leads to white fungal growths on the nose and wing membranes. It was first identified in New York, USA, in February 2006, and has since spread throughout the north-eastern USA and beyond. Populations of little brown bats have been severely affected, and other bat species are also threatened by this disease. Photographed in October 2008, by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation, New York State, USA.
