It is one of the smallest European bat species, distributed in the temperate part of the Palearctic, from the British Islands and Morocco, to China. It roosts in gaps in buildings and rock crevices throughout the year. Hibernation takes places also in caves in a few cases. In Cyprus it was located in only a few cites and it is one of the rarest bat species of the island.
It is probably threatened by the demolition or renovation of buildings where it roosts and the use of agrochemicals.
Priorities for the species are:
1. Clarification of the systematic status of the species in Cyprus.
2. Systematic search for the species’ colonies.
3. Identification of critical feeding areas.
4. Public awareness.
5. Restrictions in the use of agrochemicals.
