The occurrence of Ceratapion gibbirostre and C. carduorum in the Netherlands (Coleoptera: Apionidae) We re-examined the Dutch material of Ceratapion carduorum, present in the main Dutch museum collections and some private collections. It was found that in the past C. carduorum was confused with C. gibbirostre. Ceratapion gibbirostre is a common and widespread species, occurring in all provinces in the Netherlands. The true Ceratapion carduorum appeared to be very rare: only five specimens from three localities in the north of the country, proved to be that species.
