    C gloriosa emerged

    On his rusty website (Elytra and Antenna) he says that Beyer's scarab "usually becomes an adult in less than 1 year from ova being laid", suggesting that the book instructions worked well for rearing beyeri. http://www.angelfire.com/oh3/elytraandantenna/USIUSInsec

    Hello from so cal

    Welcome! CA is a biodiversity hotspot for darkling beetles. I have seen some very interesting species in the forests and semideserts.

    Pretty sure Orin did. Do you have his Ultimate Guide?

    Thoughts on new layout?

    All my text is black and thus readable though. I suspect it's just a glitch; maybe changing browsers could help...?

    I should be fine now

    sigh, technical difficulties pursue me without relent Instagram currently unavailable For some reason I am also forced to type blue hyperlinked text half the time on Beetleforum if I ever start acting strangely in the future, there is little doubt as to the culprit

    Cannibalism in Lucanus?

    McMonigle recommends separating all elaphus L3s, because they are "easily overcrowded", which possibly suggests that lack of space may be problematic even with plenty of food.

    Cannibalism in Lucanus?

    From Mcmonigle's Ult Guide: Lucanus grubs cannibalize or bite each other when resources are in short supply

    New to beetles, not to insects

    Welcome! Assorted dermestids often crop up in feeder insect boxes, so I'd guess that is what your beetles are.

    Heading to Texas!

    Not too much research seems to exist on the biology of North American glowing clicks, but given that their relative Pyrophorus can live quite some time as an adult I'd assume that the NAmerican ones are active whenever it's warm enough.

    Heading to Texas!

    Oh, and since TX is so close to the Mexican border, many interesting animals are found there. I think one Chrysina lives wild over there
