Stag beetles — All they need is love and wood

To start with Stag Beetles for Everyone was dedicated to the European stag beetle Lucanus cervus, but over the years other species have crept in. Please, see all the featured stag beetles here, or feel free to use the search bar.

This year's stag beetle flying season has started on May 17 in Colchester and it is now over.
If you haven't already done so, do register your sightings on the ongoing PTES survey: The Great Stag Hunt III. However, I regret to say that due to the recent rearrangement of their website this link may no longer work.

If you have any interesting observations do not hesitate to email me as I enjoy receiving your emails. Thanks to your feedback there is always something new to learn about these fascinating beetles. This year's highlight was the discovery that stag beetles can fall prey to false widow spiders.
See you soon ;-)
