Kutasi, C. & Szél, G. 2006: Ground beetle assemblages of dolomitic grasslands in Hungary. Entomol. Fennica 17: 253257.

The carabid assemblages of dolomitic grasslands were investigated in the Transdanubian Mountains in Central Hungary using pitfall trapping between 1988 and 2005. A total of 2515 indvidual adult carabids, belonging to 65 species were collected from five localities. The most abundant species were Calathus ambiguus (24.5 %), C. cinctus (16.8 %) and C. fuscipes (8.4 %). Rare species were Amara proxima, A. sollicita, Cymindis axillaris, C. variolosa, Licinus cassideus and Masoreus wetterhallii. The seasonal activity of adult Carabus hungaricus is given.
