    A Stag or Tiger Beetle?

    You are correct. It's a male Mallodon dasystomus

    beetles in asia

    This should belong to "Beetles for sale/wanted" section
  3. Lucanus


    This isn't about a beetle. It should belong to either "other discussion" or "other invertebrates" section.

    Water Scavenger Beetle

    Pretty sure that's Cybister sp.

    OMG SLEEPERI! Congratulations on your finding! A saw an image posted by a FB friend who had M. sleeperi on branches of palo verde tree so I assume they prefer feeding on branches rather than on trunks (probably because branches have softer bark compare to trunks). Hope you can find a bunch and sell a live pair to hobbyist! Would really love to see these become available in the hobby On a side note, S. cessus does not occur in Algodones dunes if I remember correctly.

    Lucanus placidus

    They are pretty common up in the north, but not many people seem to be willing to collect them in their range

    Which Is Correct?

    Euchirinae should be correct, since they belong to family scarabaeidae

    Finds Payson Az

    It's not a june bug though u'll be disappointed to see adults if u are expecting beetles with horns (both sexes of this species lack horns).

    Finds Payson Az

    Are you sure they are two different species? They both look like female Strategus cessus to me
  12. Lucanus


    It appears to be a female so u should try breeding her

    Flashiest Beetles. What's your favorite?

    Calosoma scrutator FTW! Though freshly emerged D. derbyana layardi is equally pretty, their color wears out a bit

    I'm fairly certain this is a female Xyloryctes jamaicensis.

    It's actually Orthosoma brunneum.
