Francesc Uribe,


The information of the ecology and lifestyle of bats is very limited in Algeria. In this paper, the results of an inventory study of the Chiroptera fauna were conducted between January 2014 and December 2015 in Chebket ES-Sellaoua Mountains (Eastern Algeria). Surveys were carried out in 10 caves along the region with a visual survey and animal captures. Five species were detected: Rhinolophus hipposideros, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, Myotis punicus, Miniopterus schreibersi and Pipistrellus Kuhli. They belonged to three families: Rhinolophidae, Miniopteridae and Vespertilionidae
