Abstract (in english)
   paper reports the bat material from three MN3-5 sites in NW Bohemia. In contrast to other samples of that age, it is composed mostly of vespertilionid bats (eight different forms can be here well distinguished). In agreement with other Oligocene and Early Miocene samples of vespertilionid bats, most of the specimens in our sample exhibit the dental pattern characteristic of the extant genus Myotis. It is demonstrated, however, that in most cases they probably do not belong to that genus but represent the ancestral grades of some other clades. Two new genera (Quinetia gen. nov., Hanakia gen. nov.) and three new species (Nyctalus storchi sp. nov., Miostrellus egeriensis sp. nov., Hanakia fejfari sp. nov.) are described and a new name (Myotis ziegleri nom. nov.) is proposed for M. elegans Baudelot, 1972 (nec Hall, 1962)
