Agapanthia intermedia
2 
On May 7th, 2011 two specimens of the longhorn beetle Agapanthia intermedia were discovered on mesoxerophytic grassland on the Gangelsberg near Duchroth (Nahe valley). The xerothermophilous species develops in Field Scabious (Knautia arvensis). The separation from Agapanthia violacea by Frieser and Sama has not yet been fully accepted by all coleopterists. A. violacea sensu lato is known to occur from Spain over Germany and Italy to the Black Sea and Asia minor. German records belong to A. intermedia without exception. The species is widespread in Germany, but is not found too often (RL 3).
