On June 2nd, 2014, several specimens of the jewel beetle Scintillatrix rutilans were observed in the city of Reutlingen. The beetles were swarming during the sunny noon on lime trees and cut lime tree logs at the edge of a small forest strip in a residential area. The species is known to occur from Europe to Russia. In Europe it avoids the zone of atlantic climate. The development takes place under the bark of ailing lime trees and takes 2-3 years. In Germany S. rutilans is regarded as endangered (RL 2).
