Abstract

A bat survey was conducted at Crocker Range Substation Ulu Senagang, Keningau, Sabah, from February 19 to 23, 2018. Harp trap and mist nets were used to capture bats. The four trapping nights resulted in the capture of five species of bats belonging to three families namely, Pteropodidae, Emballonunidae and Vespertilionidae. Three species were captured from the old logged-over forest, whereas two species were captured in the modified landscape. Generally, the recorded bat species are classified as Least Concern by IUCN.
