View answered requests for beetle ID


On this page you can find photos submitted by users. If possible, the species are identified by the kerbtier.de ID team. Sometimes determination by photo only is impossible, in this case at least a hint on family and genus and potential species will be given. Requests to the kerbtier.de ID team can be submitted on the request page. The answered requests are published here shortly (currently 3 hours on average) after submitting.

Request:
Found in Poland, nearby Zakopane, summer 2012. Is that Carabus granulatus ?
Species, family:
Carabus silvestris  Carabidae
Comment:
  Hi Inja, given the puncture of the elytra I would guess it is Carabus silvestris, too. Normally this species is colered copper-brown, gold-copper greenish. But occasionally one can find blueish-black specimen. Regards, Christoph

Request:
Found in Poland, nearby Zakopane, summer 2012. I know it's Oreina, and probably you can't say no more... :)
Species, family:
Oreina sp.  Chrysomelidae
Comment:
  Hi Inja, yes, another Oreina. Impossible to determine just by photo. It requires dissection and examination of the aedoeagus of the male. Regards, Christoph

  Hi Inja, this should be the black form of Phyllobius calcaratus. Palearctic species from North Africa over Europe to Siberia. Polyphagous on deciduous trees and shrubs, from the lowlands to the subalpine range. Regards, Christoph

Found in Poland, in mountain (Tatry), summer 2012. I am sure it's Carabus :)
Species, family:
Carabus silvestris  Carabidae
Comment:
  Hi Inja, yes it's a Carabus species. I think it's Carabus silvestris. Montane or submontane in forests. You can find it from July to September. Carabus alpestris is very similar, but not present in Poland. regards gernot  I would agree with Gernot that it is Carabus silvestris. Regards, Christoph

Comment:
  Hi Inja, I have to apologize that we did not come to a conclusion about your candidate within a reasonable time - so I close this open request now unsolved: It is a Pterostichus sp., but I cannot provide a determination to species level. Regards, Christoph

Comment:
  Hi Inja, in Switzerland it's getting real hind to identify those Oreina. You are right in identifying the genus, but without dissection there is no way to identify the species. Sorry. Regards, Klaas

Species, family:
Cantharis tristis  Cantharidae
Comment:
  Hi Inja, that's a member of family Cantharidae. It's Cantharis tristis, which is the only one coloured this dark and found that high. It is a typical element of the alpine fauna. Regards, Klaas

Species, family:
Chrysolina sp.  Chrysomelidae
Comment:
  Hi Inja, I can't really help with this one. It is genus Chrysolina, but not C. rufa. I don't know which species it is. The photos show to little to get to the species. I leave this for the others. Maybe one of them knows more. Regards, Klaas   Same for me, I think we have to leave it with Chrysolina sp. Sorry! Regards, Christoph

Comment:
  Hi Inja, a weevil of genus Otiorhynchus. They are very speciose especially in the mountain range of Southeast Europe. I do not dare to give a determination to species level just by photo. Maybe Erwin can say more... Regards, Christoph

Request:
Found in Poland, nearby Bielsko-Biała (spring 2012), in my opinion it's Geotrupes silvaticus (i see a lot of little dots in his head, g. stercorarius has no dots, i think)
Species, family:
Anoplotrupes stercorosus  Geotrupidae
Comment:
  Hi Inja, more or less right. Wrong so far that this species is no longer genus Geotrupes, but genus Anoplotrupes, and since nearly 100 years it isn't named sylvatica anymore, but stercorosus (don't confuse with stercorarius, which is another species ;-) ). Regards, Klaas

Comment:
  Hi Inja, this is a Byturus species, which are common on flowering plants. There are only two species in the genus. They can be distinguished by the size of their eyes. Given the size/resolution of your photo I struggle to make a firm decision here. That's why I leave it with Byturus sp. Regards, Christoph

Request:
Hallo zusammen, dieser Käfer hier kletterte an Silvester aus einem Haufen Brennholz (Buche) leider komme ich bei der Bestimmung nicht wirklich weiter. Ich vermute eine Art der Scarabaeidae (er ähnelt sehr Valgus hemipterus) was mich etwas verwundert ist der lange Legebohrer. Vielleicht sind mir auch bisher nur Männchen begegnet? LG und Dank, Christoph
Species, family:
Valgus hemipterus  Scarabaeidae
Comment:
  Hallo Christoph, absolut korrekt, das ist natürlich Valgus hemipterus, aber das Weibchen, das man viel seltener findet als das überall leicht aufzufindende Männchen. Von Nordafrika über Süd- und Mitteleuropa bis Kleinasien. LG, Christoph

Species, family:
Necrophorus investigator  Silphidae
Comment:
  Hi Macy, geniale Bilder zur Bestimmung! Ein Vertreter der 8 Arten der Gattung Necrophorus in Deutschland: Rotgelbe Fühlerkeule, kerzengerade Hinterschienen, unbehaarter Halsschild, gelb behaarte Abdomenspitze und diffus lang zottig gelb behaarte Vorderbrust machen ihn zu Necrophorus investigator. Holarktisch verbreitet, an Aas. Die Milben sind keine Parasiten, sondern benutzen den Käfer nur als (Flug-) Taxi. Phoresie nennt man dieses Verhalten. LG, Christoph PS: Best practice was die Fotos betrifft! So müssen Anfragen aussehen.

Und dann wäre da noch einer, den ich nach Bildvergleich für Luperus longicornis halten würde. Da die Fotobestimmung lt. Galerie aber schwierig bis unmöglich ist, bitte ich um Eure Meinung.

Luperus luperus  Chrysomelidae
Comment:
  Hallo Jochen, den würde ich für ein Männchen von Luperus luperus halten, weil die Mittel und Hinterschienen von der Mitte zum Apex angedunkelt sind, bei L. longicornis sollten sie ganz gelb sein. Was mich dahin bringt, dass ich mein L. longicornis-Männchen in der Fotogallerie nochmal anschauen muss *urks*. LG, Christoph
