Ampedus sinuatus
1 
On May 1st, 2011 two specimens of the click beetle Ampedus sinuatus were recorded in the forest 'Unterer Dossenwald' near Mannheim-Rheinau. The species lives in old deciduous and mixed forests and develops in decaying wood of beech and oak. Its distribution ranges from the southern part of Central Europe to the Caucasus and Asia minor. In Germany it reaches the northern boundary of its range and is regarded as endangered (RL 2). Among our click beetles, it might be confused only with the equally rare Cardiophorus ruficollis.
