Thank you both :)
Gerardo, they only exist on the eurasian continent, that's why ;-)
But even here they are not that easy to spot as they are tiny (7-9mm) fellows most of the time hidden under stones or else, but when discovered they can run really fast. And they seem to live mostly on the banks of small waters.

Amazing beetle!
