Hello from New Jersey


Recommended Posts

My father was a collector of many things - and one of his passions was mounting his beetle collection (ironically, he also loved the Beatles and has an impressive Beatles memorabilia collection as well).

Unfortunately he passed away and we simply don't have the room to keep everything.  We donated his moth collection to a friend, and another one took his small colorful beetles - no doubt there were some rare specimens in there... but we kept the largest ones - especially the Goliathus orientalis pair my mom got for him from the Philippines.

Hopefully I can get some help in the photos section identifying the rest... I'd like to at least label the big guys so I can pass down some beetle-knowledge to my two boys, and my daughter... although I think only one of the boys will be interested - the other two are not too fond of bugs.
