SPECIES Pipistrellus (Pipistrellus) kuhlii

Author:Kuhl, 1817.
Citation:Die Deutschen Fledermäuse, Hanau: 14.
Common Name:Kuhl's Pipistrelle
Type Locality:Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Trieste.
Distribution:C Europe, Near East through the Caucasus to Kazakhstan and Pakistan; SW Asia.
Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) – Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Subgenus Pipistrellus. Does not include African populations (here referred to hesperidus), see Kock (2001b). Canary Isls populations referred to kuhlii by Pestano et al. (2003) probably also represent hesperidus and also listed under that taxon. Reviewed in part by Harrsion and Bates (1991) and Bates and Harrison (1997). For discussion of correct spelling (kuhlii) and authorship (Kuhl not Natterer), see Bogdanowicz and Kock (1998).
