Ablattaria laevigata Wikipedia
Ablattaria laevigata can reach a length of about 12–18 millimetres (0.47–0.71 in).
It has a semielliptical pronotum, not narrowed. Elytral punctuation is dense, with sparse thicker punctures.
These beetles are predators of terrestrial snails (Theba pisana, Monacha species, Xeropicta species, Candidula species). They are able to penetrate the snail shells.
This species is present in most of Europe and in the Near East.
