On June 2nd, 2012, one specimen of the Marbled Jewel Beetle Poecilonota variolosa was found in the arid floodplain of Grißheim (South Baden). The animal landed on the author in the midday heat. Poecilonota variolosa is known to occur from North Africa across Europe to East Siberia and avoids the influence of the atlantic climate. It develops in ailing European aspen (Populus tremula) on dry locations. In Germany, newer records are known from Bavaria, Thuringia, Saxony-Anhalt, Baden and recently Brandenburg. Poecilonota variolosa is regarded as endangered (RL 2).
