Scientific Name: Ampedus carinthiacus Bouwer, 1984

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Near Threatened (Regional assessment) ver 3.1
Year Published: 2010
Date Assessed: 2009-06-05
Assessor(s): Nardi, G., Tykarski, P., Munteanu, N., Schlaghamersky, J., Istrate, P. & Putchkov, A.
Reviewer(s): Alexander, K. & Nieto, A.
Justification:

European regional assessment: listed as Near Threatened because the Extent of Occurrence is 10,000 km², it is very likely to be in fewer than ten locations (possibly one site), but a continuing decline in the area of occupancy or extent, area and quality of habitat is not known,thus making the species close to qualifying for Vulnerable.

EU 27 regional assessment: listed as Near Threatened because the Extent of Occurrence is 10,000 km², it is very likely to be in fewer than ten locations (possibly one site), but a continuing decline in the area of occupancy or extent, area and quality of habitat is not known,thus making the species close to qualifying for Vulnerable.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: This species is only known from the state of Carinthia, Austria (Laibner 2000) and thus has a restricted distribution and an Extent of Occurrence of up to 10,000 km² (size of the state of Carinthia).

Population [top]

Population:

Published information shows it is only known from two records (Laibner 2000) so it is suspected that it is restricted to Carinthia and possibly only in one location, and likely not to be in more than five or ten locations in the area. The population is thus considered to be relatively low, but no information is known about trends.

Current Population Trend:Unknown
Additional data:
