Hello! I came across your site while trying to identify (what I now know is) a Cottonwood Stag Beetle in Utah. I added my own comment to the topic on your site and saw you mention you’d be happy to receive photos by submitting them through this link, so here I am! I don’t know what you’d do with them, but I’m happy to share…

    Do these fly? I found a similar one but it flies any ideas what it could be?

      We believe Cottonwood Stag Beetles are capable of flight. Though it regards a different species of Stag Beetle, the Royal Parks site states: “Believe it or not Stag Beetles can fly. Males will fly out to look for a mate at dusk on humid, thundery evenings between May and August.”

    I’m in Provo and I found one of these. It seems to be close to 3cm long, though. Does that sizing sound right?
