We observed a strong association of several viral lineages to particular bat genera for paramyxoviruses identified in Hipposideros, Miniopterus, Coleura, Myotis, and Pipistrellus
bats, although the bats were sampled from geographically distant locations.
Nomenclature follows Wilson and Reeder (2005) for scientific and vernacular names except for Parastrellus and Perimyotis, which we used instead of Pipistrellus
(following Hoofer et al.
To guarantee the survival of the populations of 12 bat species (Myotis myotis, Myotis blythii, Myotis capaccinii, Miniopterus schreibersii, Rhinolophus euryale, Rhinolophus hipposideros, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, Eptesicus serotinus, Pipistrellus
kuhlii, Nyctalus noctula, Hypsugo savii and Tadarida teniotis).

It is no wonder then, that naturalist Alessandra Tomassini and journalist Marco DOAmico at the Italian League for Bird ProtectionOs Rome Wildlife Rescue Centre and their Mediterranean Habitat Centre in Ostia, produced a documentary about the story of Divo, a baby Pipistrellus
kuhlii or Vesper bat that Alessandra took in under her care.

When using time expansion detectors, the species can also be missed because of its weak echolocation signals, especially if louder species such as Eptesicus nilssonii or Pipistrellus
nathusii are flying nearby.
Analysis of dispersion using the Morishita Index indicates the fragile population of Pipistrellus
subflavus is slowly increasing.
