Otho sphondyloides (Germar, 1818) belongs to the subfamily Melasinae, tribe Calyptocerini (Coleoptera: Eucnemidae). It is a widespread but seldom encoutered false click beetle with the range reaching from northern Germany and Carinthia in Austria to Korea and Japan. Although O. sphondyloides has already been reported from several isolated localities in Central Europe, no record has been available from the Czech Republic. Here, I report the occurrence in Southern Moravia, in the lowland deciduous primary forests close to the junction of the Morava and Dyje rivers (Soutok area, South Moravia Biosphere Region). The new record indicates that the species might persist in further undisturbed localities in the region. Biology notes and the records of other xylophagous beetles occurring in the same locality are provided.

The taxonomic status of several species of the genera Dicronychus Brullé, 1832 and Cardiophorus Eschscholtz, 1829 is treated herein. The identifications of Dicronychus equiseti (Herbst, 1784), D. equisetioides Lohse, 1976 and D. luciae Laibner, 1985 by Stanislav Laibner are revised. The following new synonymy is proposed: Dicronychus luciae Laibner, 1985 = Dicronychus equiseti (Herbst, 1784) syn. nov. The species Dicronychus testaceus (Fabricius 1792) stat. n. is newly treated as a bona fide species, based on the morphological study of the male and female genitalia, especially aedeagus and bursa copulatrix. An overview of other species from the ‚Dicronychus cinereus group‘ known from Europe, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia and Iran is likewise presented herein. The atypical shapes of lateral sclerites of brusa copulatrix from south-Moravian (Czechia) population of Cardiophorus dolini Mardjanian, 1985 are mentioned and described. A correction of errors published in Mertlik (2011) is presented. The paper is concluded with a Czech and Slovak faunistic survey of Dicronychus cinereus and records of D. testaceus stat. n. from Czechia, Slovakia, Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Russia.

Záznam přednášky: https://www.youtube.com/watch?

Ohrožené druhy často zoufale potřebují naši pomoc. Snahy o jejich ochranu v České republice často ignorují základní biologické zákonitosti i zdravý rozum. Reprezentanti státní moci volí ty nejsnazší cesty, za bagatelní přestupky tvrdě stíhají jednotlivce, ale plošnou likvidaci zvláště chráněných druhů velkoryse ignorují. Pokud doma pietně uchováváte malou sbírku motýlů, které před sto lety nachytal Vás pradědeček, možná k Vám naběhnou policejní zakuklenci a skončíte za mřížemi. Pokud ale zahubíte tisíce chráněných motýlů, třeba tím, že zdevastujete podstatný kus třeba chráněné krajinné oblasti Pálava, buďte v klidu. Česká inspekce životního prostředí nehne ani brvou. Tak dnes (ne)fungují zákony a instituce, které kdysi vznikly k ochraně přírody

Faunistic information about 773 species of beetles (Coleoptera) is referenced to Protected Landscape Area and Biosphere of Křivoklátsko Reserve (Czech Republic), with 133 species being new additions to a complete beetle catalog of Křivoklátsko Reserve (JANUŠ 2016) and 263 are included on a red list of the Czech Republic (Coleoptera excl. Cantharidae and Byrrhidae: HEJDA et al. 2017; Cantharidae and Byrrhidae: FARKAČ et al. 2005) as endangered species. After the inclusion of new species the total amount of beetle species discovered in Křivoklátsko Reserve has increased to 3460, with only 35 of which were not confirmed since the year 1960. 739 species are included on a red list of the Czech Republic as endangered, which makes it 21,4 % of all currently discovered species of the area. Megasternum immaculatum (Stephens, 1829) (Hydrophilidae) is reported as a new species for Czech Republic. Arthrolips picea (Comolli, 1837) (Corylophidae) is reported from Bohemia for the first time.
