Occurence of Bechstein's bat Myotis bechsteini (Chiroptera, Vespertilionidae) in Sicily.

Risultato della ricerca: Article

Abstract

The bat fauna of Sicily is still poorly known and no extensive survey of these mammalson the island has been so far carried out. Here we report on the occurrence of Bechstein’s bat(Myotis bechsteinii) on the island. We recorded this species’ presence at two sites of the Nebrodimountains (central Sicily) at an elevation of ca. 1500 m a.s.l. The occurrence of M. bechsteinii inSicily has been regarded as doubtful and not mentioned in recent checklists. Our observationsclearly establish that this species does occur on the island and awaits appropriate considerationfor conservation actions.
