Coleoptera-Scarabaeidae-Dynastes grantii-Grant’s Hercules Beetle MALE & FEMALE (D)

Dynastes granti

Madera Canyon, Santa Cruz County, Arizona
Coordinates: 31.712605, -110.875002
Elevation: 5,438 ft
August 22, 2020
Attracted to mercury vapor and ultraviolet lights
The male was captured (at the same location) on August 10, 2020
The female is one of three that showed up between 8:30 PM and 9:20 PM.
No males came to the light that night
The male and three females are now in a terrarium hoping that they will reproduce and I will be able to image the other life stages
If successful, this will be a long-term project of at least a couple of years
