Megasoma larvae weight

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have knowledge on how heavy approximately megasoma sleeperi/punctulatus L3 larvae become before pupation? What's the max weight i should be expecting?

I don't know the maximum size of this species, but I do know it's pretty variable. It'll be easy to tell when they're preparing to pupate just due to color and wrinkly appearance.

From my understanding a 10% loss is pretty typical of most US scarabaeidae.
