The Alpine long-eared bat is found in the Pyrenees, the Alps from France to Slovenia, the Dinaric Alps, Greece including Crete, and from the Caucasus to the south of Iran and the southeast of Syria. It is a small long-eared species (45-48 mm) that has been recognized recently (2003) and it is still little known. They have big and developed ears and they live from 1.800 meters and above and can stand cold temperatures all year.
Like all bats’ species the threats to their population are the destruction of their habitat and the indiscriminate use of agricultural and forestry pesticides.
