Scientific Name: Dacne notata (Gmelin, 1790)

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2010
Date Assessed: 2009-06-05
Assessor(s): Tykarski, P., Munteanu, N., Istrate, P., Tezcan, S. & Putchkov, A.
Reviewer(s): Alexander, K. & Nieto, A.
Justification:

European regional assessment: classified as Least Concern because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category. It has a widespread distribution, stable populations, and it requires fungi that grow on trunks of broad leaved trees (which is relatively common).

EU 27 regional assessment: classified as Least Concern because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category. It has a widespread distribution, stable populations, and it requires fungi that grow on trunks of broad leaved trees (which is relatively common).

Population [top]

Population:There is little information available on the abundance of this species and it is rare in central Europe but more common in the eastern part of its range. There is a scarcity of records but this may be due to low sampling.

In Ukraine it is very rare, and it is known from one specimen found in the Volyn region; it might also be present in the Carpathians and in the western part of the forest zone (Drogvalenko 1997). In Hungary this species is very sporadic, only a few localities are known from at least 50 years ago - as no new localities are known, information is unavailable on its populations (O. Merkl pers. comm. 2009).
Current Population Trend:Unknown

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:This is an obligate saproxylic species and is polyphagous on the decay fungi of broad-leaved trees. The biology of the species is known more from its Russian distribution than elsewhere. In Ukraine the adult has been reported from carpophores (fruiting body) of many wood-decay fungi - Fomes fomentarius, Piptoporus betulinus, P. calyptratus, Pleurotus ostreatus, P. pulmonarius, P. obliquus, Ischnoderma benzonium, Trametes sp.  In Hungary as no new localities are known, information is unavailable on habitat (O. Merkl pers. comm. 2009).
Systems:Terrestrial

Use and Trade [top]

Use and Trade: Saproxylic Coleoptera tend to be popular with beetle collectors although trade is rarely an issue, the only exceptions being a few larger species of more dramatic form or colour.

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s):

The main overall threat is likely to be degradation or loss of habitat quality, involving structural changes in the tree populations arising from changing land use – affecting age structures and tree density. Exploitation from forestry is often a key immediate issue, but equally damaging can be long-term changes towards canopy closure and loss of ancient trees as a result of non- or minimum-intervention management systems which all too often exclude grazing by large herbivores. Fragmentation and increasing isolation of beetle populations are also key factors.
