WIESBAUER, H., ZETTEL, H. & SCHODER, S.: , 2017: Zur Kenntnis der Wildbienen (Hymenoptera: Apidae) in Wien, Niederösterreich und dem Burgenland (Österreich) – 7. – Beiträge zur Entomofaunistik 18: 3–11.

To the knowledge of wild bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae) in Vienna, Lower Austria, and Burgenland (Austria) – 7. – Notes on the distribution and life habits of eight species of wild bees are reported. First records from Vienna: Nomioides (Ceylalictus) variegatus (OLIVIER, 1789), Hoplitis (Alcidamea) acuticornis (DUFOUR & PERRIS, 1840). Confirmed occurrence in Vienna: Andrena (Lepidandrena) paucisquama NOSKIEWICZ, 1924. First records from Lower Austria: Andrena (Poecilandrena) seminuda FRIESE, 1896, Dasypoda (Dasypoda) morawitzi RADCHENKO, 2016. Confirmed occurrence in Lower Austria and Austria: Andrena (Hoplandrena) trimmerana (KIRBY, 1802). First record from Burgenland: Tetralonia (Tetraloniella) nana MORAWITZ,1874. Rediscovery in Burgenland and second record from Austria: Eucera (Hetereucera) seminuda BRULLÉ,1832.

CHOVANEC, A.: , 2017: Sanierung morphologischer Defizite und Anlage flussbegleitender Kleingewässer – Erfolgskontrolle gewässerökologisch wirksamer Maßnahmen an der Pram (Oberösterreich) durch den Einsatz von Libellen (Odonata) als Bioindikatoren. – Beiträge zur Entomofaunistik 18: 13–37.

Correction of morphological deficits and creation of adjacent small standing water bodies – assessing the ecological success of rehabilitating the river Pram (Upper Austria) by using dragonflies (Odonata) as bioindicators. – The present study deals with the assessment of the morphological status of a three kilometres long rehabilitated river section of the river Pram from Riedau to Zell (Upper Austria) by calculating the Dragonfly Association Index (DAI). The DAI was developed to compare rivertype-specific reference conditions with the status quo; this procedure follows the requirements of the EU Water Framework Directive. Furthermore, the colonisation of two newly created small water bodies near the river Pram by dragonflies was investigated. A total of 27 species (25 autochthonous) were found at the river Pram and the standing waters, which correspond to 35 % of the Austrian species (78 species). A total of 14 autochthonous species were detected at the river itself. The DAI-based assessment procedure reveals a high ecological status for this river section. Ophiogomphus cecilia (GEOFFROY in FOURCROY, 1785), one of three gomphid species recorded at the Pram, is listed in the Appendices II and IV of the EU Fauna-Flora-Habitat-Directive.

RESCH, G. & RABITSCH, W., 2017: Seltene und bemerkenswerte Wanzenarten (Hemiptera: Heteroptera) im Marchfeld, Niederösterreich. – Beiträge zur Entomofaunistik 18: 39–51.

Rare and interesting true bug species (Hemiptera: Heteroptera) in the Marchfeld, Lower Austria. – Based on photographical citizen science records taken between 2011 and 2015 by the first author 21 Heteroptera species are reported from the Marchfeld, Lower Austria. Aradus distinctus FIEBER, 1860 is recorded for the first time from Lower Austria. Four species were not recorded in Lower Austria for several decades, including Leptopus marmoratus (GOEZE, 1778) and Galeatus maculatus (HERRICH-SCHÄFFER, 1838) that were not found in Austria for approximately 50 years. The importance and limitations of citizen science data for biogeographical studies is briefly discussed.

RABL, D., RABL, C. & HÖTTINGER, H., 2017: Beitrag zur aktuellen Situation von Lampides boeticus (LINNAEUS, 1767) (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) im östlichen Österreich, mit einem Erstnachweis für das Burgenland. – Beiträge zur Entomofaunistik 18: 53–60.

Contribution to the current situation of Lampides boeticus (LINNAEUS, 1767) (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) in eastern Austria with the first record for Burgenland. – The Long-tailed Blue or Pea Blue butterfly (Lampides boeticus) is one of the most widely distributed butterflies in the world, but it is a rare migratory species in Central Europe. It has been recorded between 1987 and 1990 in Burgenland for the first time, and in Lower Austria and Vienna in the year 2009 after many decades of absence. In Burgenland, adults were found at a railway embankment near Neusiedl am See. In Lower Austria at the geological fault line “Thermenlinie” in the northeast of Pfaffstätten, which is climatically favoured, numerous adults and caterpillars in the seedpods of Bladder Senna (Colutea arborescens) were found. In Vienna one imago was recorded in the 10th district at the recreation area Wienerberg. The habitats are described and the findings are discussed in context with historical records.

EMBACHER, G. & KURZ, M.A., 2017: Fünfter Nachtrag zu „Die Schmetterlinge des Landes Salzburg” (Insecta: Lepidoptera). – Beiträge zur Entomofaunistik 18: 61–67.

Fifth addition to "The butterflies and moths of the federal territory of Salzburg" (Insecta: Lepidoptera). – The paper deals with sixteen species, which are recorded for the first time for the federal territory of Salzburg. Among them is Bucculatrix chrysanthemella REBEL, 1886, a new finding for central Europe, and Diplopseustis perieresalis (WALKER, 1859), a new finding for Austria. Furthermore, some species have been rediscovered, which have not been found for a long time.

ZETTEL, H., ZIMMERMANN, D. & WIESBAUER, H.:, 2017: Die Hautflüglerfauna (Hymenoptera) des Lainzer Tiergartens in Wien: 1. Bienen (Apidae). – Beiträge zur Entomofaunistik 18: 69–91.

The Hymenoptera fauna of the Lainzer Tiergarten in Vienna: 1. Bees (Apidae). – The Lainzer Tiergarten is a nature reserve in the southwest of Vienna. The former imperial hunting grounds are now a public recreation area and well known for old oak forests and rare xylobiontic insects. Hitherto the Hymenoptera fauna of the Lainzer Tiergarten was largely unknown. Only eight species of bees were known from literature. An inventory project by the Austrian Society of Entomofaunistics tries to fill the gaps. 135 species of bees are so far recorded for the nature reserve. The distinctive features of the Lainzer Tiergarten as a forest reserve with large holdings of dead wood are reflected by the 33 bee species which are nesting in plant stems, beetle boreholes, or rotten wood. The proportion of oligolectic species (18.5 %) is relatively low when compared to other study sites in Vienna, the proportion of parasitic bees (18.5 %) comparatively high. From a faunistical perspective the most interesting species are discussed: Andrena dorsalis BRULLÉ, 1832, A. lathyri ALFKEN, 1899, A. pandellei PÉREZ, 1895, Anthidium septemspinosum LEPELETIER, 1841, Bombus soroeensis (FABRICIUS, 1776), Hoplitis claviventris (THOMSON, 1872), Lasioglossum angusticeps (PERKINS, 1895), Lasioglossum puncticolle (MORAWITZ, 1872), Macropis europaea WARNCKE, 1973, M. fulvipes (FABRICIUS, 1804), Nomada armata HERRICH-SCHÄFFER, 1839, N. kohli SCHMIEDEKNECHT, 1882, and Osmia gallarum SPINOLA, 1808. Two species, Lasioglossum angusticeps and Nomada kohli, are new for the fauna of Vienna. Andrena pandellei is confirmed for Vienna.

STRAKA, U., 2017: Mehrjährige Beobachtungen an einer Population des Juchtenkäfers, Osmoderma eremita (SCOPOLI, 1763) (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae), in einer Lindenallee im Weinviertel, Niederösterreich. – Beiträge zur Entomofaunistik 18: 93–108.

Multi-year study of a population of the hermit beetle, Osmoderma eremita (SCOPOLI, 1763) (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae), in a lime alley in the Weinviertel, Lower Austria. – The paper presents data of a field study conducted in a lime alley in Lower Austria. Relying on the shape of the aedoeagus the examined population was confirmed to belong to the form "Osmoderma barnabita". In the years 2008 – 2016 a total of 22 habitat-trees were identified, 21 by observing adults and five by larvae or larval frass. Seventy-four males were individually marked to study male dispersal and the frequency and phenology of the species-specific male activity on the habitat-trees. More than 50 % of the recaptured beetles were only observed within five days after their marking, the latest recapture was after 31 days. Most recaptures were on the same tree, 15 % of the recaptured beetles had dispersed to another habitat-tree. The maximum dispersal distance was 260 m. Detailed data on size variability and phenology of an Austrian population of Osmoderma eremita are presented for the first time.

STRAKA, U., 2017: Beobachtungen zur Imaginalbiologie des Scharlachkäfers Cucujus cinnaberinus (SCOPOLI, 1763) (Coleoptera: Cucujidae). – Beiträge zur Entomofaunistik 18: 109–116.

Observations on the biology of adult Cucujus cinnaberinus (SCOPOLI, 1763) (Coleoptera: Cucujidae). – This study presents data of a field study conducted in the Danube floodplain forest in Lower Austria. From June 2 until July 2, 2017 at least ten males and four females, recognizable by marking them on the elytra, were observed on five hybrid poplar logs (Populus × canadensis). Regular activity on the tree surface was observed in the morning and in the late afternoon until dusk. Details of the behaviour of males and females, like copula, egg laying and feeding in the wild were documented. For the first time the feeding of adults on slime mold was observed.

VOGTENHUBER, P. & KOFLER, A., 2017: Zum Vorkommen von Schnaken (Diptera: Tipulidae, Cylindrotomidae, Limoniidae, Pediciidae) in Osttirol und Kärnten, Österreich. – Beiträge zur Entomofaunistik 18: 117–143.

On the distribution of crane flies (Diptera: Tipulidae, Cylindrotomidae, Limoniidae, Pediciidae) from East Tyrol and Carinthia, Austria. – The craneflies (Tipuloidea) from East Tyrol were poorly known in the past. This study presents distribution data of specimens mostly collected by the second author during the last thirty years and identified by the first author. The montane and alpine character of East Tyrol is reflected by a specific fauna of Tipuloidea, with the alpine Tipula (Vestiplex) excisa SCHUMMEL, 1833 as the most frequently recorded species. In contrast some otherwise abundant species of the Austrian fauna are completely lacking. Records of 67 species of Tipulidae, two Cylindrotomidae, 36 Limoniidae, and six Pediciidae are presented. In comparison with the checklist of Austria 23 species of Tipulidae are recorded from East Tyrol for the first time. Some records from Carinthia are pesented in addition: four species of Tipulidae (one new for Carinthia), two Limoniidae, and two Pediciidae.

SEHNAL, M. & SEHNAL, P., 2017: Erstnachweis von Schmidts Grüner Strauchschrecke, Eupholidoptera schmidti (FIEBER, 1861) (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae), für Wien. – Beiträge zur Entomofaunistik 18: 145–150.

First record of Schmidt´s Marbeled Bush-cricket, Eupholidoptera schmidti (FIEBER, 1861) (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae), for Vienna. – Eupholidoptera schmidti (FIEBER, 1861) was first recorded for Austria in Mödling (Lower Austria) in 2011. In 2016 the authors discovered a second small population in Vienna next to the Danube River, about 18 km away from the first locality. Because both occurrences are located next to train tracks, freight trains could be a plausible vector for the introduction of this flightless Mediterranean grasshopper species in Austria. However, a more likely way of introduction could be with soil of root bales from ornamental shrubs that were newly planted at the parking area of Hilton Hotel.
