The 8.5 to 10.5 mm large ground beetle Agonum marginatum (family Carabidae) can be easily recognized by its greenish cupreous shine and the conspicuous yellow sides of the elytra among the representatives of the speciose genus Agonum, which is known to occur in the holarctic, neotropic and paleotropic region. As a western palearctic species of the meridional and temperate zone, Agonum marginatum ranges from North Africa including the Azores over Europe (without the far North) to Central Asia. The halotolerant pioneer species can be found at the edges of river, ponds and lakes, especially on bare ground with clayish and muddy substrate. In Germany, the species is recorded from all Federal States and is everywhere common except in the mountain range. It is regarded as not endangered. (CB)
