Record of Limodromus longiventris in the river Rhine floodplain near Oberhausen-Rheinhausen
Limodromus longiventris
2 
On November 29th, 2008 one specimen of the ground beetle Limodromus longiventris was discovered under a piece of wood in hibernation. This was the latest of 10 records for the river Rhine floodplains near Oberhausen-Rheinhausen between 2004 and 2008. In early spring L. longiventris can be found at night crawling on the lower stem of large poplars. On average the species is somewhat larger than the very common L. assimilis, which has shorter and more rounded elytra. L. longiventris is distributed in the western palearctic and is found only very localized in Germany.
