Myotis nattereri is a medium sized bat species, distributed in Central and South Europe, the Mediterranean and Caucasus. During the summer it roosts in tree holes, bat boxes, buildings and rock crevices. It hibernates in rock crevices caves and other underground sites. In Cyprus it is moderately common, with only small colonies located.
This species is possibly threatened by the loss of woodland and the demolition or restoration of the buildings were it roosts. The nuisance caused by visitors, the collapse of mines and caves used as roosts by the species, as well as the use of agrochemicals in cultivated areas may be additional threats.
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.
