Greatwun Posted December 31, 2013 Report Share Posted December 31, 2013 Went on another collecting trip with LarvaHunter again and found some more nice larvae. One tree had an adult female Phileurus truncatus along with 19 LARVAE!!! This is a new record for us. Never found this many P. truncatus larvae in a single cavity. Also came across another very tall rotting tree over 20 feet tall. At the bottom was an open cavity. As we started to dig we started to see more and more large fecal pellets. Finally half way into the tree were 7 larvae and an adult female Phileurus truncatus. We found another old stump with large pellets inside but no larvae. Overall all a very good collecting trip and a great way to start the New Year! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
