Presence of Plecotus macrobullaris (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) in the Pyrenees

Warianty tytułu

Języki publikacji



In July 2002, several bats of the genus Plecotus (Geoffroy, 1818) were captured at two localities of ‘Ordesa y Monte Perdido’ National Park (Central Pyrenees, Spain). They showed external characters that appeared intermediate between those of P. auritus and P. austriacus. Morphometric and genetic analysis have revealed that these long-eared bats should be ascribed to the recently recognized species P. macrobullaris. This study extends the distribution of this new species, whose western limit was considered, until now, to lie in the Alps, and adds a new mammal species to the Iberian fauna.
