A single specimen of the pond bat was registered in an abandoned building in Verhnobohdanivka village, Stanychno-Luhansky district, during a daytime bat census. This record is the first reliable registration of Myotis dasycneme in Luhansk oblast. Research on bats were carried out not for the first time in this anthropogenic roost, and a total of six other bat species were recorded here (Myotis aurascens, Myotis daubentonii, Plecotus auritus, Pipistrellus nathusii, Pipistrellus kuhlii, and Eptesicus serotinus). Human-made constructions are almost the only potential roosts for bats in conditions of transformed landscapes of the East of Ukraine.
