Record of Anisoplia villosa on the Felsenberg near Schloßböckelheim
Anisoplia villosa
2 
On May 27th, 2012, numerous specimens shining leaf chafer Anisoplia villosa were found swarming on the Felsenberg near Schloßböckelheim (Nahe valley). The stenotopic, thermophilous species is mainly distributed in the southern part of Western Europe. In Central Europa, occurrences are confined to xerothermic habitats. The beetles can be found on sun-exposed slopes and dry fields on flowering grasses, where they feed on the stamina. In Germany, records are known from the southern Federal States and the species is regarded as endangered (RL 2).
