Cardinal Beetle
© 2006 Glasu

Local provenance native trees provide a wonderful habitat for local wildllife.
The cardinal beetle is classified as vulnerable in Great Britain. Their ideal habitats is free-standing old broadleaved trees and fallen boughs on forest edges that have a south-west facing aspect, as well as swamp forest containing free-standing alders and fallen tree trunks.
Like all click beetles, this cardinal click beetle has a novel means of righting itself, should it be flipped over onto its back. The back is arched, and the beetle flips up into the air with an audible 'click', often landing back on its feet.
Like all beetles that depend on dead wood habitats are threatened by the loss of old woodlands and parklands, due to development or agricultural expansion. Old trees and fallen dead wood are often removed from woodlands, reducing the available habitat for these beetles. Furthermore, the age structure of trees within sites may be skewed, and as a result, a constant supply of old wood may be lost
