Ephemeral Stag Beetle Greetings Card: Original Art Design Inspiration
The stag beetle is the largest beetle in the UK (up to 7.5cm in length). It can be found in South East England. These beetles help with the decomposition of dead trees and their larvae are a food source for a variety of other animals. They are a vital part of the forest ecosystem. Although they can live up to 6 years in the early stages of the lifecycle, they only last a few months when they emerge as adults (May to August). We have dubbed this creature “ephemeral stag beetle” in recognition of the short adult life-span. They are harmless to humans.
Male stag beetles have a beautiful reddish-brown colour to their outer shell, as captured in the artwork of this card. Keep a look-out next time you are in the forest!
This Ephemeral Stag Beetle Greetings card depicts an original digital painting by Julie O’Neill: “Forest Fauna: Ephemeral Stag Beetle”.
