Tetrix tenuicornis Sahlberg, 1893 

Ecological interactions

Conservation status

Least Concern for European assessment ( Hochkirch et al. 2016).

Distribution

Central and east Europe and Middle East. In Italy, it is widespread in the north-eastern regions, scarce in the north-west and with some records in the central Apennines ( Iorio et al. 2019, Massa et al. 2012).

Notes

It is a small meso-hygrophilous species. It is common from the coast to submontane habitats, up to 1100 m a.s.l ( Fontana et al. 2002). It forms abundant population in the slightly moist parts of dry grassland, along irrigation canals or in irrigated meadows. The adult can be found throughout the year, even if the species probably winters as a nymph ( Massa et al. 2012).
