Identification of this species requires experience, but in Cyprus it is easy, since it is the only species of the genus Plecotus which is present on the island. It is a Mediterranean species and roosts in rock crevices, buildings, bridges and caves. In Cyprus it is rare and not very abundant, since a few small colonies have been located.
It is probably threatened by the demolition or renovation of buildings were it roosts, human presence in its refugia (including caves and mines), collapse of mines and the use of pesticides.
Priorities for the species are:
1. Systematic monitoring of the species’ colonies.
2. Identification of critical feeding areas.
3. Protection of the species’ refuges.
4. Public awareness.
5. Restriction in the use of agrochemicals.
