Agonum (s. str.) marginatum (Linnaeus, 1758) 

Dispersal power.

Fully winged and flight-active; able to quickly colonize restored habitats ( Lindroth 1945; Trautner and Rietze 2017; pers. obs.).

Habitat.

Stream banks and margins of winter ponds and artificial water reservoirs where vegetation is mostly sparse (Fig. 31View Figures 31–34).

Phenology.

Throughout Europe (without North Scandinavia), southwards to North Africa, eastwards to Cyprus, Asia Minor, and southern Levant ( Schmidt 2017).

Distribution in the southern Levant.

Already listed by Bodenheimer (1937) for the southern Levant without exact localities. Recently recorded only from the northern part of Israel (Upper Galilee, Golan Heights, Northern Coastal Plain); there are two old records from the Southern Coastal Plain (Miqwe Yisrael 1941) and Judean Hills (Hartuv 1925).
