  • PF: for the habitat types that can have a non-priority as well as a priority form (6210, 7130, 9430) enter "X" in the column PF to indicate the priority form.
  • NP: in case that a habitat type no longer exists in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Cover: decimal values can be entered
  • Caves: for habitat types 8310, 8330 (caves) enter the number of caves if estimated surface is not available.
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation)

Other Site Characteristics

Cette grotte est un site d'hivernage majeur pour l'une des espèces de Chauve-souris d'intérêt communautaire, le Grand Murin (Myotis myotis). Ces lieux étant rares en Languedoc-Roussillon, ce site est d'un grand intérêt pour l'étude et le maintien de cette espèce, sensible aux dérangements comme tous les chiroptères. Actuellement ce site n'est pas vulnérable mais l'habitat par lui-même est sensible aux dérangements (visites, spéléologie, etc.).

4.2 Quality and importance

Site en très bon état de conservation, particulièrement important pour l'hivernage du Grand murin (Myotis myotis)
