In 2014 research was carried out into saproxylic beetle fauna in different forest communities in Kopački rit Nature park. There were 64 species of saproxylic beetles found in the area. among them Cucujus cinnaberinus (scopoli, 1763) and rhysodes sulcatus (fabricius, 1787) are protected by the european habitats Directive (annex II and IV of Council Directive 92/43/eeC) as well as by the bern Convention (annex II), and are listed in the IuCN red list of Threatened species. r. sulcatus and… Expand

Size matters! Habitat preferences of the wrinkled bark beetle, Rhysodes sulcatus, the relict species of European primeval forests
The wrinkled bark beetle Rhysodes sulcatus is an endangered saproxylic beetle listed in the European Habitats Directive and in the Bern Convention (Annex II). It is considered a relict of primevalExpand
Cucujus cinnaberinus (Scopoli, 1763) at its terra typica in Slovenia: historical overview, distribution patterns and habitat selection
The saproxylic beetle, Cucujus cinnaberinus, has received increasing research attention in Europe since the adoption of the Habitats Directive and establishment of the Natura 2000 network. TheExpand
First records of two remarkable Coleoptera species Cucujus cinnaberinus and Metoecus paradoxus (Coleoptera: Cucujidae, Rhipiphoridae) from the republic of Karelia (Russia)
Viable populations of two remarkable Coleoptera species – Cucujus cinnaberinus (Cucujidae) and Metoecus paradoxus (Rhipiphoridae) are reported for the first time from the Republic of Karelia (Russia), evidences the importance of such territories for preserving and monitoring the populations of rare and poorly known species.

Large-scale habitat model reveals a key role of large trees and protected areas in the metapopulation survival of the saproxylic specialist Cucujus cinnaberinus
Deforestation for agricultural purposes and logging over centuries has resulted in a significant loss of forest cover and the deep structural and functional simplification of persistent EuropeanExpand


Rediscovering the ‘umbrella species’ candidate Cucujus cinnaberinus (Scopoli, 1763) in Southern Italy (Coleoptera Cucujidae), and notes on bionomy
The saproxylic beetle C. cinnaberinus was rediscovered in Calabria after 49 years of unsuccessful attempts (since 1960) in 7 of the 21 stands investigated; it seems to be concentrated in good quality biotopes marked by a high availability of fallen pine trunks at least 30 cm in diameter. Expand
Identification of Larvae of Endangered Cucujus cinnaberinus and C. haematodes (Coleoptera: Cucujidae)
Morphology of the larvae of two rare European species of the genus Cucujus (cinnaberinus and haematodes) is compared and differences are pointed out which allow the two species to be properly distinguished and which have been omitted or misinterpreted in literature. Expand
Phenology and notes on the behaviour of Cucujus cinnaberinus: points for understanding the conservation of the saproxylic beetle
A summary of the phenology and notes on the behaviour of a species of beetle that should be the focus of conservation biology is presented, which is often red- listed, and comparisons of published data within its whole area of distribution are used. Expand
Worldwide distribution of saproxylic beetles of the genus Cucujus Fabricius, 1775 (Coleoptera: Cucujidae)
This paper characterises the distribution of 10 known species of Cucujus, and presents new records of C. bicolor from Myanmar – the southernmost occurrence of the genus. Expand
High-accuracy sampling of saproxylic diversity indicators at regional scales with pheromones: The case of Elater ferrugineus (Coleoptera, Elateridae)
The rare beetle Elater ferrugineus was sampled at 47 sites in the county of Ostergotland, Sweden by means of pheromone-baited traps to assess its value as an indicator species for hollow oak standsExpand
A comparison of three methods to survey saproxylic beetles in hollow oaks
This study aims at comparing three methods – windowtrapping, pitfall trapping and wood mould sampling – to assess speciesrichness and composition of the saproxylic beetle fauna in living, hollow oaks. Expand
Habitat associations of saproxylic beetles in the southeastern United States: A comparison of forest types, tree species and wood postures.
Abstract Saproxylic beetles are highly sensitive to forest management practices that reduce the abundance and variety of dead wood. However, this diverse fauna continues to receive little attentionExpand
Saproxylic beetle assemblages in the Mediterranean region: impact of forest management on richness and structure.
Abstract Forests cover almost 30% of the Mediterranean region today, yet forest management activities have influenced structure and composition of both natural and planted forests. To date no studyExpand
Saproxylic beetles as indicator species for dead-wood amount and temperature in European beech forests
The efficacy of saproxylic beetles as indicator species for European beech forests is determined and the conspicuous Lucanidae is identified as the family with the highest percentage of indicator species and recommended as a priority indicator group for monitoring. Expand
