Until now in the Croatian part of Istria, there is 17 known species of bats with the poor knowledge about maternity and winter roosts. However, the southest part of Istria has been never explored. Research of this subject has been conducted during 2012 and 2013. To gain insight into bat species which reside in stated area, several methods have been used: net hunting at roots entrances and near the pools, visual observations at roosts and species identification using bat-detector at water bodies, caves, abandoned military objects, mines and other significant habitats. During this survey, a total of the 12 bat species have been found. Of special significance is finding of multispecies maternity roos with the five species, all on the List of Addenda II of Habitats Directive in an abandoned military object near settlement Premantura in area of Gornji Kamenjak, and the finding of Rhinolophus ferrumequinum winter roost in an abandoned quartz mine near Loborika.
