One Response to Mango Stem Borer from Thailand

    Batocera: definitely edible.
    During an insect banquet in Chiang Mai I found a ‘mixed plate’ of insects, including a couple of sphinx moths and an adult Batocera. I tried it, but didn’t find much to eat in the abdomen. I think the larva would be more delectable.

    Best,
    Dave
