nurunuru Posted June 25, 2011 Report Share Posted June 25, 2011 I'm hoping someone here with experience of keeping Lucanus elaphus can shed some light on how long they tend to live in the imago stage, as the information I've found online has been very conflicting. Supposedly L1 to L3 takes anywhere from 1 year to several years, pupal stage lasts 7 to 9 months, and then the imago stage either lasts 1 month or 2+ years depending on who you trust. Does anyone have some more reliable information they could share? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
