There are many species of small bats, maybe 10 to 14 in our area. I suggest you look at some of the field guide to mammals books. Quite a challenge there. I wonder if anyone, even very familiar with small bats, could answer your question from the photo (is there just that one). It appears to me to have a rather simple unwrinkled face and nose also ears that don’t fold back, that would reduce the options. A photo or information about the tail (is it enclosed in the membrane?) may simplify the question.
