金邊五角大兜蟲簡介

中名: 金邊五角大兜蟲/粗尤犀金龜 學名: Eupatorus hardwickei cantori 產地: 中國雲南盈江縣 (Yingjiang County, Yunnan, China)

本種有著短粗的五角以及被金黃色邊緣圍著的黑亮身軀,因此不難令人聯想到其中文俗名的由來。

金邊五角大兜的分佈產地並沒有為人所熟悉的黃五角大兜之廣泛。只有在中國西南部雲南一帶、緬甸和尼泊爾能夠看到其身影,因此其數量比後者為稀少。圖中則為雲南盈江縣產的70mm+大型個體。

This species has five thick and short horns, with a shiny black body surrounded by golden yellow edges. It is not difficult to think of the origin of its common name in Chinese (Golden-yellow-edged five-horned rhino beetle).

E.hardwickei is not as widespread as the well-known E.gracilicornis. It can only be seen in parts of southwest China, Myanmar and Nepal, so the size of population of the former is a lot smaller than that of the latter. It is a 70mm+ large individual from Yingjiang County, Yunnan in these pictures.
