Thanks to Heinz Ebert (Mückeln, Germany) and Ben Schultheis (Luxembourg), who made us attentive to the smallest european beetle. Baranowskiella ehnstromi is only 0,6mm long and lives inside the pores of the native fungus Phellinus conchatus, which occurs on old sallow (Salix caprea). The beetle, known worldwide by only a few finds, is a first record for Luxembourg. Ben found 17 additional sites of the beetle in Luxembourg.
