Green Stag Beetle
Stag beetles are a group of about 1,200 species of beetles in the family Lucanidae, presently classified in four subfamilies.
Lamprima adolphinae is a relatively easy to breed species. Females are laying eggs into soft white rotten wood. Some females in my breeding were digging deeply into wood pieces and creating long tunnel systems before laying the eggs. Keeping of the larvae is quite easy and they can be reared on white rotten wood or fermented sawdust.
