Allotopus  rosenbergi ♀

Allotopus rosenbergi ♀

The great Golden Stag from Java, Indonesia!  Sometimes also call the “Golden Devil” because of its devil like horns.  Beetle horns and mandibles (jaws) are mostly used as weapons: they are used in combat between rival males over access to females which usually lack horns or large mandibles (and/or are smaller), an example of sexual dimorphism. These contests tend to occur in physically restricted places, such as on branches or in burrowed tunnels. Since larger horns and mandibles often result in breeding success over periods of time, evolution naturally produced increasingly exaggerated features.

  • While we try our best to depict the actual colors & design of our butterflies and other insect artworks on our website, please note that colors, rendering and hand crafting may appear differently from one computer to another. We cannot guarantee that the insect & its artwork design you receive will be identical in color, shade or size as the one you see on our website.
  • Our frames are not air-sealed. This will allow you to repair your butterfly, beetle or other insect should it become necessary. Since our insects specimens have been professionally preserved and dried, we guarantee that your display will last and look wonderful for a very long time. Therefore, air sealing is merely a personal choice and not a necessity.  This also allows for inside frame cleaning from time to time such as interior glass due to organic out gassing over time and is natural.
  • We may substitute a different size frameset in same color depending on variability aspects such as insect size and product availability.
  • Most artworks are shipped within a week of ordering but may require a few days longer to prepare some insects.
