A dead individual of C. leucodon was found in the Lower Tatra Mts. (Central Slovakia, Western Carpathians). The site is situated in the westernmost part of the main ridge of this mountain range at the altitude of 1,150 m a. s. l. The prevaling habitat is a mountain meadow surrounded by spruce and beach-maple forests. In Central Europe, the species usually occurs in lowland and hilly areas, records above 600 m a. s. l. are very rare. The finding of C. leucodon in the mountain ridge at this extraordinary altitude is the highest documented occurrence of the species in the Western Carpathians and Central Europe as well. It is probably related to expansion of the species range in the recent decades and its spreading to higher altitudes, which is more common at the southern border of its distribution area.
