Record of Thanasimus rufipes in the nature reserve Wahner Heide near Troisdorf
Thanasimus rufipes
1 
On May 21st, 2011 one specimen of the checkered beetle Thanasimus rufipes was found on a field trip with the Rhineland Coleopterist Association in the nature reserve Wahner Heide near Troisdorf on a sawed-off pine branch. It can be distinguished from the much more common T. formicarius by its red legs and the missing oblique black elytral marking in front of the white marking. The species occurs in pine and mixed forests and preys on various scolytids. It's known from all-over Germany, but records are sporadic and rare.
