Artist's Description

Patiently waiting, she sat on the dusty, fading giant orange mushroom (Omphalotus olearius) and sent out her odoriferous message. He came loudly scampering through the dry leaves on the forest floor, weaving his way over and under. Meandering back and forth, loudly zipping to the left, conspicuously veering to the right in a very wide course, he came closer and closer at an astonishingly fast clip.

Suddenly, and at the last moment, he changed course to miss my feet and he was on the gigantic shroom beside her.

He rushed to her side and paused for a dramatic moment just as their eyes met. Soon they were in a buggie embrace and she slowly took him down in between the aging mushroom caps into a darkness below and disappeared. …

Violins playing, hearts floating, and yes, it really was beyond doubt, freaky. This is where they went.

Sure do wish that I knew the name of this beetle species and I’m hoping someone will tell me. They were pretty huge for this spot in the world, maybe the biggest ones I’ve seen here. They must have been 1½ to 2 inches, even without their antennae.

UPDATE: These giant beetles are called Broad Necked Root Borer (Prionus laticollis)

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HELPED ME TO DISCOVER THIS ID!
