Female or Male P. truncatus


Recommended Posts

Phileurus is a rarely collected beetle in the United States. Photos on bugguide suggest that males have horns like this:

However, the specimen I caught a few weeks ago in Arizona has very lobed horns (see attached, below).

 

Can anybody describe the sexes of these beetles?

 

Thank you in advance!
