Beetles

By William T. Hathaway

Beetles

A couple of our largest local beetles are the male Giant Stag Beetle (Lucanus elaphus) and the Eastern Hercules Beetle (Dynastes tityus), both of which may reach 40-50 mm in length, excluding the so-called antlers or horns.

Large beetles are attracted by night lights, to the great joy of student collectors.
