Lesser Stag Beetles

Mick Fordy came across a Lesser Stag Beetle (Dorcus parallelipipedus) in his Llanmadoc garden last Friday that reminded him of some images that he'd taken back in October 2007 of grubs in an rotting Apple log he had in his garden. This site must be at or near the extreme western edge of the species' range, so useful to have proof of breeding.
