Discovery of the diving beetle Laccornis oblongus (Stephens, 1835) in Bavaria, southern Germany (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae, Hydroporinae, Laccornini)

Abstract

The diving beetle Laccornis oblongus (Stephens, 1835) is recorded for the first time from Bavaria, southern Germany, which marks the most south-westerly record of the species known to date. Three specimens were collected in the Murnauer Moos nature reserve in Upper Bavaria. We summarize what is known about the species habitat in Germany and provide photographs of the sampling site and habitus, median lobe of aedeagus, and paramere of the species. We provide a checklist of the 20 other diving beetle species we found syntopic with L. oblongus .
