Rhinoceros beetle Sinodendron cylindricum - Linnaeus, 1778

Rhinoceros beetle


  • Live specimens are needed for the ongoing research in their mycangium symbionts led by Dr. Masahiko Tanahashi.
  • It would be nice to get some photos to improve this page. Please, if you got some, do share with the website.
  • Also, I would like to rear them, but I haven't got them in my area.

    If you find some, please collect them and get in touch with me.
