  1. Very unique species from Florida. While these look somewhat similar to E. fulgida, they are much smaller (about 2/3 of fulgida) and have different color scheme.
  2. You need to get there as soon as the sun goes down. Otherwise people will swarm the area and collect them all before you could get to them.
  3. FYI I have them up for sale
  4. I'm having a beetle infestation....
  5. Cetoniinae. Impossible to ID them to species beyond that. Just rear them up in the wood you found them at.
  6. I'm super jealous! Hoping to find some of these this year.
  7. Good to see that these are doing well for you. I've also had 3 emerge over the past few weeks. Hoping they'll breed for me again this year.
  8. Someone told me that they've been bred and reared in captivity by using clover sprouts and bird seeds. Took them 4~5 years to rear the larvae to adulthood.
  9. They can fly https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/d8f5/c61aebaed9b4519ffae216c7b0561a442cfe.pdf
  10. I'm afraid that pupa is a goner. Its legs and wings are in wrong position, and the body has already started to discolor. I'm sorry for your loss.
  11. Yours is an adult male. The picture you are using as a reference is of asian species, which has different sternite shape than our native species. Here're some pics for reference. Male Female
  12. You are correct. It's a male Mallodon dasystomus
  13. This should belong to "Beetles for sale/wanted" section
  14. This isn't about a beetle. It should belong to either "other discussion" or "other invertebrates" section.
  15. Pretty sure that's Cybister sp.
  16. 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.
  17. They are pretty common up in the north, but not many people seem to be willing to collect them in their range

  19. Euchirinae should be correct, since they belong to family scarabaeidae
  20. 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).
  21. Are you sure they are two different species? They both look like female Strategus cessus to me
  22. It appears to be a female so u should try breeding her
