"A flying mammal with a keen sense of smell. Nasty when woken during daylight."
—The Folio Bruti on the Mortis Bat.[src]

The Mortis Bat is a poisonous species of bat. It is known for being particually hostile when woken during the daytime. It tends to be found in darker areas of the wizarding world, such as Hogwarts Castle or the corners of Knockturn Alley.[1]

Etymology

Mortis is the genitive case of the Latin mors, meaning death. Thus, Mortis Bat could be taken as "Bat of Death".
