About
The hermit beetle or Russian leather beetle, is a species of European beetle in the family Scarabaeidae.
Treats
The Hermit Beetle is threatened by extinction due to loss and fragmentation of its habitat (wooded pastures), during the last century. The beetle lives in the interior of older deciduous trees in Austria mostly in oaks, feeding on decaying wood. Preservation of old oaks and wooded pastures is thus a major concern considering the chances of hermit beetle survival in many areas of Austria.
