Abstract: The doline Buraco das Araras is a peculiar environment and important destiny for ecotourism in the Serra da Bodoquena region, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. Here we describe the bat fauna of the doline and surrounding areas, and report its use as dayroost by the bat Nyctinomops laticaudatus. Bats were mist-netted during two field expeditions, in November 2007 and January 2008. We captured 153 individuals of 10 species, mainly N. laticaudatus (n = 90) and Artibeus planirostris (n = 28). This is the first record of… Show more

“…Such strong dominance of A. planirostris has been also reported in other local surveys in the Pantanal floodplain and in its neighbouring upland regions (Camargo, 2003;Camargo et al, 2009;Cunha et al, 2009;Teixeira et al, 2009). Although the dominance by A. planirostris occurred in both regions, in the Pantanal floodplain there were three insectivorous non-phyllostomid species (Myotis nigricans, Noctilio albiventris, and Molossus molossus) among the most common bats, contrasting with the upland plateaus where the commonest species were all frugivorous phyllostomids (Figure 4).…”

“…Assembling all the 35 sampling sites, diversity was found to be H' = 2.5. These values are higher than those (H' = 1.5 to 1.8) found in short-term surveys in the Bodoquena region (Camargo et al, 2009;Cunha et al, 2009), and closer to values (H' = 1.8 to 2.3) found for different areas in the Atlantic forest in southeastern Brazil (Pedro and Taddei, 1997;Esbérard, 2003).…”

“…In the Cerrado, most studies recorded between 10 and 26 bat species when mist nets were the single sampling method used (Ferreira et al 2010;Cunha et al 2009;Zortéa and Alho 2008;Aguirre 2002). Even in a better sampled biome such as the Atlantic Forest, most studies found local richness values below 30 species (Stevens 2013), but it is known that the biome harbors much more species than that (Paglia et al 2012).…”

“…Annual rainfall ranges from 1,000-1,700 mm; the average temperature during the coldest month (July) ranges from 15-20ºC (Campelo et al 1997). The predominant vegetation is composed of savannah forests associated with karstic reliefs and rocky soils (Boggiani et al 1999, Cunha et al 2009 Key words: Phyllostomidae -savannah -Serra da Bodoquena -Streblidae four mist-nets (12 x 2.8 m) were kept open during a sixhour period starting at dusk. Mist-nets were visited at 30 min intervals and the captured bats were then transferred to individual cloth bags prior to being inspected for parasites, which we conducted in the field the same night.…”
