Common name - Rainbow Stag Beetle
Scientific name - Phalacrognathus muelleri "Amethyst"

The listing is for 1x beetle larva, of a highly sought after species of Stag Beetle that is infamous for their metalic, rainbow colouration as adults. This is a very rare, special bloodline from Japan which is different from any other purple bloodline which tend to be a reddish purple. This bloodline has been selectively bred for their lusturous purple-grape colour. 

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from Queensland in Australia.

The adult beetles feed on a variety of fruits such as banana, apple, pear, peach and watermelon. The larvae feed on decaying wood.
