Abstract
Glanzkäfer. Amphotis marginata lebt in Ameisenstaaten an Futtertransportstraßen. Kommt eine beladene Arbeiterin, imitiert er das taktile Bettelverhalten der Ameisen und erhält einen regurgitierten Futtertropfen. Schutzfunktion des Rückenschildes gegen Ameisenangriffe.
The sap-beetle Amphotis marginata waits along the foraging trails of Lasius fuliginosus for foodladen workers. By stimulating the ant's mouthparts the beetle causes it to regurgitate a troplet from its crop. If the robbed ant reacts aggressively, the beetle shows passive defense.
