Lucanus maculifemoratus is a beetle of the Family Lucanidae.
They live in the mountainous outskirts of Japan in several islands.
thanks Mr Goldfish. I'll check into that ID...
What a treasure Pam! You are finding the greatest things in Japan! That second picture is amazing!
Maybe Lucanus maculifemoratus. I do not know of any other Lucanus in Japan. I read that Lucanus maculifemoratus lives in Amur also.
thanks stho002 and the reptile man...
some sort of stag beetle.
