Data on the distribution of the different resident bats in the Canary Islands are updated and new data is gathered. The western islands (La Palma, El Hierro, La Gomera and Tenerife) hold a bigger species diversity and greater population abundance. The northern slopes of the islands, with a greater diversity of habitats and higher humidity, hold the most abundant populations. Tenerife is the island with greater diversity because all the species established in the Canaries have been recorded. The extreme was found on Lanzarote where it does not look like any stable populations exist, possibly due to the persistence and strength of the winds and the dominance of semi-desert habitats. Barbastella barbastellus is the rarest and most enigmatic species and new data on the distribution has been gathered. Pipistrellus savii is well distributed in the archipelago, present on all the islands except Lanzarote. Field observations reveal that Pipistrellus maderensis is the most common species whereas Tadarida teniotis, found in the highest number of plots, has the greatest distribution.
