We conducted fecal analysis of the common bat, Pipistrellus abramus, foraging above rice fields in Kyotanabe City, Kyoto, Japan. Two classes and eight orders of arthropods were identified. Most of the prey arthropods were flying insects such as Diptera, Hemiptera, and Hymenoptera. The diet composition varied seasonally, and the principal prey taxon changed from Diptera in June to Hemiptera in September.
