oak forest, near creek
Thank you, Michael! I do little research, you're right and will change the ID to A. parallelepipedus :)
The genus Abax is definitely right, but I can't see any rugose punctures in the basal half of the pronotum, which would be the key character for A. carinatus. http://www.kerbtier.de/cgi-bin/deXCompar...I think it's rather another Abax species, but I'm not sure which one. The ones shown on this website are from Germany. Croatia has a slightly different fauna, with a few more species. A. parallelepipedus is the most common one.
odmah je odredjena cim sam ju stavila :) stvarno je lijepa i sjajna...
I IDed this beetle as Abax carinatus...
Thanks again, I will do research and try to find which species lives in area :)
I think this is CARABIDAE Pterostichini sp
