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.

Sitzt im Wohnzimmer unter der Decke. Gerade in Hannover gefunden
Species, family:
Phymatodes testaceus  Cerambycidae
Comment:
  Hallo Zxr900, der gehört zu den Bockkäfern. Es handelt sich um Phymatodes testaceus. In Europa, Kleinasien, Kaukasus, Nordafrika. Eingeschleppt nach Nordamerika. Entwickelt sich in Laubhölzern, vor allem Eiche und Buche. Wahrscheinlich hast Du kürzlich Brennholz in die Stube gebracht, daraus ist er dann geschlüpft. An verbautem Holz ist er nicht interessiert. LG, Christoph

Request:
Diesen kleinen Käfer (ca. 1,8 -2 mm) habe ich in der Wohnung entdeckt.
Species, family:
Anthrenus sp.  Dermestidae
Comment:
  Hallo Urs, ein Anthrenus. Abgerieben wie er ist, kann ich ihn leider nicht mehr zur Art bestimmen. Die Anthrenus-Arten ernähren sich von Pollen (Doldenblütler, Weißdorn, Eberesche), die Larven von keratin- und chitinhaltigen Stoffen (tote Insekten, Haare, Federn). LG, Christoph

Hallo Zusammen, diese schwangere Dame (ca. 15mm-20mm)fand ich unter Totholz, Troisdorf, 1.5.2013. Eine Abax Art? Vielleicht A. parallelepipedus? Besten Dank & Gruß Marek
Species, family:
Abax parallelepipedus  Carabidae
Comment:
  Hallo Marek, ja es ist Abax parallelepipedus. Das an den Schultern hervortretende 7. Fld.-Intervall macht ihn zum Abax. Der Halsschild und auch der Gesamteindruck zeigt aus meiner Sicht deutlich einen parallelepipedus. lg gernot

Diesen Kurzflügler fand ich an der Hausmauer. Ca 1cm lang. Könnte es Philanthus atratus sein ? Vielen Dank
Species, family:
Philonthus sp.  Staphylinidae
Comment:
  Hallo Urs, keine Chance, die Philonthus sind am Foto selten gut zu bestimmen. Bei diesem hier sieht man leider den Halsschild und seine Punktierung nicht und zu allem Überdruss hat das Tierchen auch noch sein Abdomen "getarnt". Keine guten Voraussetzungen für die Bestimmung. Sorry. LG, Christoph

Species, family:
Alophus cf. triguttatus  Curculionidae
Comment:
  Hi Cilko, this should be Alophus triguttatus, nowadays called Graptus triguttatus. There are a few more species in Europe. I think in Slovakia there should be at least G. kaufmanni present. I still think A. triguttatus is correct, but some residual uncertainty remains. Regards, Christoph

cf. Mecaspis alternans  Curculionidae
Comment:
  Hi Cilko, this is again a difficult one. Tribus Cleonini for sure. I think that's most probably Mecaspis alternans, which is present in Slovakia as well. Literature (FHL) gives 7-14 mm body length (without snout). Regards, Christoph

Comment:
  Hi Cilko in this row of Donus sp. I was initially tempted to say that this is Donus as well. But after considering a while, I think this could be Liophloeus tessulatus. Confusing... ;-) Maybe my Co-Admins like to comment. Regards, Christoph   The longer I look at it, the more doubts I have. Donus or not Donus, that's the question. Christoph

Comment:
  Hi Cilko, this is a representative of genis Donus. This genus is difficult to determine by photo. On top of that the genus is quite speciose, especially in Southeast Europe. Let's stick to Donus sp. here. Regards, Christoph

  Hi Inja, this should be a representative of genus Hoplia. Might be H. graminicola, but there are a few more species in Poland than in Germany and I don't dare to give a det on species level. Regards, Christoph

Request:
Die beiden schwarzen Käfer habe ich zuerst als Exochomus quadripustulatus vermutet.Nach der Paarung mit einem Harmonia axyridis, glaube ich eher es handelt sich bei allen Käfer um H.axyridis Exemplare,schon wegen den weissen Flecken am Halsschild. Trift meine Vermutung ev. zu ? Fundort auf Brombeerblättern mit Blattläusen.

Harmonia axyridis  Coccinellidae

  Hallo Urs, absolut! Es handelt sich um eine der vielen Farbvarianten des Asiatischen Marienkäfers Harmonia axyridis. LG, Christoph

Nachtrag zu # 3220. Ich habe mir auf der Vergleichsseite (echt cool, Christoph!) beide infrage kommenden Arten angesehen und nochmals meine Fotos durchwühlt. Und ich tendiere wieder zu. A. familiaris angesichts des nun besser zu sehenen Halsschildvorderrandes und angesichts der Körpergröße. Was meint ihr nun dazu? Oder habe ich Tomaten auf den Augen? ;-) Liebe Grüße und nochmals danke!
Species, family:
Amara familiaris  Carabidae
Comment:
  Bei Bild A erkennt man die vorstehenden Halsschildvorderecken, was tatsächlich eher an familiaris denken lässt. Bei lucida müssten sie eher stumpf verrundet sein. Grüßle, Oliver   Woran man die Untiefen der Fotobestimmung sieht. Die entsprechende Perspektive kann hier Dinge verbergen, die vorhanden sind und welche vorgaukeln, die nicht vorhanden sind. LG, Christoph

Hallo ihr Lieben. Dieser in meinen Augen wunderschöne, markant gezeichnete Bursche besuchte mich heute auf der Terrasse. Nachdem ich ihn hier in der Gallerie nicht finden konnte, landete ich per Google Bildersuche bei Phyllobius vespertinus (der Käfer auf biolib.cz sieht fast so aus wie meiner, finde ich). Er war etwa 6,5 mm lang, was auch zu meiner Artvermutung passen würde. Hier auf den Fotos nicht so gut zu sehen: die hellen Bereiche an Kopf, Thorax und Abdomen waren in real noch ein wenig mintfarbener und glänzten, wie der Rest des Körpers, metallisch im Sonnenlicht. (Wunderschön! :-) Was meint ihr? Geht es überhaupt bis zur Art? Ich danke vielmals! (30.04.2013, Terrasse)
