Hide details for Myotis blythiiMyotis blythii

Myotis blythii is a species of the temperate part of the Western Palearctic, but it is also present in India, Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China. It’s a typical cave dweller (roosts in caves, mines and other underground sites). In Cyprus is not very common or abundant, although it has been located in several sites in the recent years.
It is threatened by the destruction of mines and caves. Additional threats are the nuisance caused by visitors, the collapse of mines and buildings used as roosts by the species, as well as the use of agrochemicals in cultivated areas.
Priorities for the species are:
1. Systematic monitoring of the species’ colonies.
2. Identification of critical feeding areas.
3. Restoration and protection of the species’ refuges.
4. Restrictions in the use of insecticides.
5. Public awareness.
