During the visit of the international jury, I saw a rare tiger beetle (Cylindera arenaria) for the first time. Cylindera arenaria is a small tiger beetle inhabiting sandy river alluviums. Unfortunately, most of these biotopes were destroyed by humans, so this tiger beetle became very rare. Paradoxically, it found a new home in quarries, mostly in sediment basins with nearby water source. I was extremely thrilled about that find, but little did I know this tiger beetle would be a very common inhabitant of this quarry. When I arrived a month later, I was shocked. There were hundreds of them everywhere. Sadly, once this quarry is recultivated and pine forest is grown here, not one of them is going to survive.
