On July 16th, 2010 one specimen of the very rare net-winged beetle Benibotarus taygetanus was found in the forest 'Bienwald' near Büchelberg by using a light trap. The silvicolous, 9-11 mm large species can be distinguished from the common, similar Dictyopterus aurora by the two elevated, curved ribs on the elytra and the yellow apex of the 11th member of the antenna. B. taygetanus is known to occur in Central and parts of Eastern Europe. In Germany it is critically endangered (RL 1).
