Phytoecia icterica
9 
On May 18th, 2013, two specimens of the longhorn beetle Phytoecia icterica were discovered near Neuleiningen. The stenotopic, xerothermophilous species is known to occur from Europe to Asia minor and the Caucasus. It develops on plants of the carrot family, e.g. parsnip (Pastinaca sativa), wild carrot (Daucus carota) and Burnet Saxifrage (Pimpinella saxifraga). The beetles can be found on warm and dry slopes, calcareous drifts, on steppe heathland and at dry edges of meadows. In Germany the species is missing in the northern Federal States and is regarded as vulnerable (RL 3).
