A chiropteran mummy, M, is a type of monster that appears in dNetHack and notdNetHack. It is a mummified chiropteran that is the only non-humanoid mummy in the monster class.

A chiropteran mummy has four strong claw attacks. They also inflict curses on the player character upon death like most other mummies.

But for an account of the manner in which the body was
bandaged, and a list of the unguents and other materials
employed in the process, and the words of power which were
spoken as each bandage was laid in its place, we must have
recourse to a very interesting papyrus which has been edited
and translated by M. Maspero under the title of Le Rituel de
l'Embaumement. ...
Everything that could be done to preserve the body was now
done, and every member of it was, by means of the words of
power which changed perishable substances into imperishable,
protected to all eternity; when the final covering of purple
or white linen had been fastened upon it, the body was ready
for the tomb.
