On April 2nd, 2011 several specimens of the rare apionid weevil Phrissotrichum rugicolle were observed on calcareous grassland at the Heimberg near Waldböckelheim. The xerothermophilous species lives on heath steppe and warm slopes and prefers limestone or gypsum soil. It is oligophagous and develops on plants of the rock rose family (Helianthemum and Fumana). In Germany, Phrissotrichum rugicolle is known to occur only in the southern Federal States and is regarded as endangered (RL 2).
