Reddish-Brown Stag Beetle

Lucanus capreolus


A dead stag beetle. Males have broad pincers that can be painful, but seldom break the skin. The honey colored femurs are a key identifier in this species.


On a residential curb near a landscaped (but untended) garden at night in September. The neighborhood is forested, deciduous.


Also known as the Common Stag Beetle.
