5-HORNED RHINOCEROS BEETLE - EUPATORIS GRACILICORNIS

THE SCIENCE:

Eupatoris gracilicornis is a member of the Scarabaeidae (scarab beetle) family, within the Dynastinae (Rhinoceros beetle) subfamily in particular. It has been found in China, India, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. Unlike most other Rhinoceros beetles, which have two horns, E. gracilicornis has five: two extending laterally from each side of the prothorax, and one larger than the rest extending anteriorly from the center of the head. Its thick, shiny exoskeleton is jet-black, while its forewings are a varied shade of golden yellow. The species is capable of flight, albeit not very efficient flight due to its large size (ranging from 50mm to 95mm) and relatively weak wings.

THE STORY:

E. gracilicornis is indeed one of the most magnificent and unique species of beetle in existence. We carry the finest specimens here at Evolution! Our all-natural, intact specimens (no fake parts here!) are all of first-rate quality, delicately prepared, mounted, and framed with double-glass glazing in our very own fabrication studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We model our frames from solid fine ashwood, and they’re available in both a matte-black, and a natural finish. Because of high demand, some of our framed insects may not immediately be in stock, and may take up to an extra week to ship due to production. Please do contact us at (212) 343-1114 ext. 402, or at fabrication@theevolutionstore.com, with any questions regarding availability and/or custom orders.

Attention: Due to our fabrication studio’s pending relocation to upstate New York, we’ll be temporarily suspending production of our framed and/or mounted specimens. Normal production is expected to resume in July. We’ll be accepting online pre-orders for these products until then. Please contact us at (212) 343-1114 ext. 402, or at fabrication@theevolutionstore.com with any questions or concerns!
