Anyone know the size of a minor Lucanus elaphus?

Recommended Posts

I usually categorize beetle sizes as - XS, S, M, L, XL, Monster.



Since this species is known for their huge head, id say if they have a small head, then its a minor.


Small head meaning the width of the head is about the same as the rest of the body.


They will have a higher chance of having a big head above 47mm.


Anyways, I would say...


30-35mm- XS

35-45mm- S

45-50mm- M

50-55mm- L

55-60mm- XL

60mm+ - Monster
