status

 

Agonum (Olisares) viridicupreum (Goeze, 1777) 

Dispersal power.

Fully winged and flight active (pers. obs.). A species with an abrupt northward distributional extension in Central Europe ( Drees et al. 2011).

Habitat.

Wetlands, mostly winter ponds, rarely on riverbanks of streams or in semi-open floodplain woodlands (e.g., swamps with Tamarix  and Eucalyptus  north of the Sea of Galilee) (Figs 31View Figures 31–34, 33View Figures 31–34).

Phenology.

Spring breeder, tenerals at least sometimes also in March; adults hibernate.

Distribution range.

The nominate subspecies from Southwest Europe to West Siberia and southern Levant (including Sinai, Drees et al. 2011); in North Africa (without Egypt) and Central Asia two further subspecies ( Schmidt 2017).

Distribution in the southern Levant.

In the Mediterranean climate zone (Lebanon, North Israel, Egypt: North Sinai) ( Drees et al. 2011), not yet known from Jordan. The southern Levant is the rear edge of the distribution range of the nominate subspecies. In contrast to the leading edge no poleward shift has been observed in the southern Levant ( Drees et al. 2011).
