Record of Cassida murraea in Oberhausen-Rheinhausen near Philippsburg
Cassida murraea
0 
On June 23rd, 2011 three specimens of the fleabane tortoise beetle Cassida murraea were discovered on a Rhine dam with a rich herbal flora near Oberhausen-Rheinhausen (North Baden). While the immature beetles show a greenish color, fully developed beetles exhibit a beautiful orange-red coloration. Cassida murraea develops oligophagous on Inula species and on fleabane (Pulicaria dysenterica). The species is known to occur in virtually all Federal States and is recorded regularly, but not too often. It is not regarded as endangered in Germany.
