On June 12th, 2010 numerous specimens of Trinodes hirtus (family Dermestidae) were observed in the city forest of Frankfurt. The tiny, inconspicuous species is only 1.5-2.5 mm long and can be found in hollow trees at and in cobwebs, where it feeds on the leftovers of captured insects. Trinodes hirtus is distributed across Europe and reaches North Africa and the Caucasus. In Germany, T. hirtus is regarded as vulnerable (RL 3) with recent records from virtually all Federal States.
