please . . .
Dear Margarethe, in case you have a quite firm idea where your insect belongs in the system (as here and in some more of your pictures on the "unidentified beetles" page, it would be much better to either move them to that subfamily/genus, or to keeep them in "ID Request" for a while!

 
I was keeping it in ID request
I never move anything to just 'Coleoptera'
Someone is moving stuff around in a way that doesn't leave a signature. I have complained about that before.
