  1. Hello everyone, I thought I would take the opportunity to reach out and ask if anyone has stag beetle identification resources/citations they are willing to pass along. I have most of what is available for North American species, but wouldn't mind expanding my Zotero to include anything I could use as reference for future identification (I'm aware that subspecies in southeast Asian stag beetles gets diverse). If anyone is interested I would also be willing to compile and publish a topic with everything formatted for easy reference.
  2. Hello everyone! For those of you that are interested in herps I've attached a link to the live virtual fall conference for my states herpetological society. The schedule is pretty stacked with snake talks so feel free to check out some of this years great speakers! https://www.facebook.com/vaherpsociety/videos/2774278172892157
  3. Absolutely gorgeous beetles! I found my first of both species this year and was lucky enough to get a specimen. Are you able to get them to breed fine with just flake soil?
  4. I run through so many headlamps that it is seriously frustrating. I've use to love my old black diamond. It was only 200 lumens but 10 years ago that was a $80 headlamp. I've honestly switched to grabbing cheap $20 Walmart (Energizer) headlamps and they are amazing for one or two nights or decent herping/bugging.

  5. Hello folks at USBeetles, I've been eyeing your stock for some time while I am getting set up to culture specimens for my collection. Do you have any plans to extend into other US lucanid species such as Platycerus, Platyceroides, Dorcus, or Sinodendron?
  6. Hello everyone, I'm a entomology student focusing on Lucanidae, and currently working on a project utilizing citizen science data from iNaturalist to better understand the distribution and habitat associations of Lucanus elaphus in Virginia, USA. I wanted to start exploring specimen culturing of Lucanidae to help me get a better understanding of their biology, behavior, and to eventually accumulate a comparative collection. I'm also interested in all of the "big beetles" of the Mid-Atlantic and would eventually love to have the understanding and methods to culture as many of the North Ame
