Hide details for Eptesicus serotinusEptesicus serotinus

Eptesicus serotinus is a large and robust bat. It is widely distributed in the Palaearctic, occurring form the British islands and Morocco to Eastern China and Southeast Asia. Nurseries are found in buildings and in rock crevices and cave entrances. Hibernation takes place in buildings and rock crevices. In Cyprus it has been found in the central and eastern part of the island, but it seems to be rare although it is very poorly studied.
It is probably affected by the loss of its habitat. The extermination of colonies in buildings with insecticides is documented in urban areas. Additional possible threat is the demolition-collapse of old buildings which provide shelter to colonies of the species.
Priorities for the species are:
1. Systematic monitoring of the species’ colonies.
2. Identification of critical feeding areas.
3. Restrictions in the use of insecticides.
4. Public awareness.
