Observation of Cylindera arenaria in the district of Rastatt (North Baden)
Cylindera arenaria
3 
On June 9th, 2012, numerous specimens of the ground beetle Cylindera arenaria viennensis were observed at a quarry pond in the district of Rastatt. The beetles dwelled on a sun-exposed, sandy-muddy, flat bank and escape very swiftly. C. arenaria is known to occur in the western Palearctic from France to the Caucasus and tends to develop regional subspecies. In Germany, the only subspecies present is ssp. viennensis. Records after 1950 are known from Baden, Bavaria, Palatinate, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Brandenburg. The last record from Baden was made in 1984 by Büche. C. arenaria is regarded as critically endangered (RL 1).
