Hercules Beetle (11×14)
In spite of a range that extends from Guatemala to Brazil, Hercules Beetles are very difficult to locate. A large Hercules is among the most prized of all beetles.
With several described subspecies, the wing covers (elytra) of Hercules Beetles can vary widely from uniform black to dusty brown to spotted green. The frontal horn and thorax, however, always remain glossy black.
