What species is the following? I assume it is a cockroach, but I am not sure. What is it exactly? I live in South Germany.
This looks like a Pedostrangalia revestita (i totally ripped this from the site below. I have no idea if this is correct, I am still looking for the English and German terms (in German it is a kind of Bockkäfer))
I am by no means an expert, but those look alike. The wing-covers have similar shapes, red legs, big eyes, the butt-brush.
Some coleopterist might come to improve on this answer with proper terminology, please don't forget to laugh about the word butt-brush.
Edit: on a German page i have found another similar one: Rhamnusium bicolor, the "Beulenkopfbock" (german) (but, similar to the other source, I found conflicting images on different sites)
