Can L2 goliathus larvae be sexed? I know L3 can but can it be done on L2?

Yes - http://beetlesaspets.blogspot.com/2013/10/

But, the "Harold's organ" will most likely only be visible once the male L2 larvae have reached full growth, and even then, you will probably need to use a reasonably powerful magnifying lens to see it.
