Lot Highlights

 

1. Rarity and Value
The Lucanus cervus, known as the European stag beetle, stands out as a remarkable and highly prized specimen in the world of entomology. Classified as Near Threatened by the IUCN Red List, it is not only a subject of scientific interest but also a conservation priority. The males, with their pronounced, antler-like mandibles, represent a striking example of nature’s artistry, making this beetle particularly sought after by collectors and nature enthusiasts.

 

2. Discovery and Preservation
Lucanus cervus thrives across a variety of European wooded environments, typically found in the rich, decaying wood that constitutes its natural habitat. Specimens like the one preserved in our 12 cm high glass cloche are often discovered in their larval stage within the soil or during the male’s characteristic low-pitched buzzing flights at dusk. This particular beetle has been meticulously preserved, showcasing all its physical features in exceptional detail.

 

3. Human Touch and Restoration
Our preserved European stag beetle is a product of careful human intervention aimed at showcasing and conserving its natural beauty for educational and display purposes. The preservation process involves meticulous techniques to ensure that the physical integrity and coloration of the beetle are maintained, making it an enduring specimen for study and admiration.
