Hi there,
I found this bug upside down on the road. I’m not sure what type of beetle it is. Is it a stag beetle?
Signature: Thanks!

Golden Green Stag Beetle

Golden Green Stag Beetle

We believe this is a Golden Green Stag Beetle, Lamprima latreillii, but we would not rule out another member of the genus.

    Yes, it is Lamprima latrielle, i.e. a stag beetle, Family Lucanidae.
