Abstract

A survey of bats was undertaken in coastal southwestern Tasmania from Bond Bay north to Pilot Bay at Macquarie Harbour entrance. Survey sites were located within wet scrub and button grass moor vegetation communities, predominantly along watercourses or on ecotones with beaches or marsupial lawns. Of the eight species of bats so far known from Tasmania, only Falsistrellus tasmaniensis was not recorded in the present survey. A total of 53 individuals were captured in 111 mistnet hours from 22 survey sites sampled, including five species not previously recorded from southwestern Tasmania- Nyctophilus timoriensis, Chalinolobus gouldii, C. morio, Vespadelus darlingtoni and V vulturnus. The most widespread and frequently trapped species was N. geojfroyi. Species captured infrequently were V regulus and N. timoriensis (two sites) and V vulturnus (one site).
