Golden Stag Beetle (I believe) found in George Town, Tasmania.
Kool. I'm down in the Southern Midlands myself, but I hail from the US originally. I'm also one of the 'Rangers' on this site so feel free to ask any questions, or ask for help if you need it. Right now, I'm off to Hobart to run errands. Later. Lori
Hey Lori :) Thanks for the welcome :) I live in Tasmania, have for the last 12 years. I only found this site yesterday when I was searching to see what type of 'Christmas beetle' it was :)
Hey Mel, are you Taswegian, or were you just visiting? Either way, welcome to NOAH.It is indeed a Golden stag beetle. It's a female, and they tend to be metallic green. It's the males that are gold and have the long "stag" antennae.Here's a female I spotted recently: http://new.noahs-app.appspot.com/spottin...And the male: http://new.noahs-app.appspot.com/spottin...
