Abstract: Systematic and faunistic studies of the tapeworms found in 792 bats belonging to 19 species showed that 4 Cestode species are occurring in the bats indigenous in Hungary. Among the bats examined, 20% harboured tapeworms. The tapeworm Myotolepis grisea (Beneden, 1873) Tenora et Baruš, 1960 was found in Myotis myotis, M. blythi oxygnathus, Eptesicus serotinus and Rhinolophus ferrumequinum; Vampirolepis acuta (Rudolphi, 1819) nov. comb, occurred in M. myotis, M. nattereri, Nyctalus noctula, E. serotinus and Plecotus austriacus; V. balsaci (Joyeux et Baer, 1934) Spassky, 1954 was found in M. myotis, and Vampirolepis baeri sp. n., described by the authoress on the basis of specimens studied in Hungary and Switzerland, was found to be a parasite of Nyctalus noctula.
