Giant Stag Beetle (Lucanus elaphus)

Description

A giant stag beetle (Lucanus elaphus), the largest species of its kind in the Stag family, and Coleoptera (beetles) the largest order in the animal kingdom.

Out for a walk, both of us: stag beetles hide during the day in all kinds of places but sometimes turn up in suburban yards; they are most active at night, the cover of dark aiding in camouflaging them from predators.

Identifying colors: red, black; note the triangular labrum, a structure corresponding to a lip, especially the upper border of the mouthparts of a crustacean or insect. The hefty body and extended mandibles make the fascinating giant stag beetle an enormous insect, the largest stag in North America, and one of the biggest bugs on the planet, the adult to 2.34 inches (6 cm) long in North America, but tropical stag beetles easily top 3 inches, and the slow-moving herbivore climbs well.

Males of some large beetle species have spectacular jaws, most striking in the giant stag beetle, a woodland inhabitant, with impressive distinctive antler-like mandibles, sometimes as long as half their body.

Description

I thought this was going to be a Five-spotted Glyphidocera, but it turns out to be something much more interesting. This is a newly described species in the genus Frumenta named Frumenta davidi. It was just described by McCarty et al. (Proc. Entomol. Soc. Wash. 122(2):415-441, April 2020). The species occurs in south and central Texas. This apparently constitutes a new county record, the nearest mentioned by McCarty et al. is Llano County. The larvae are gall producers on the fruit and stems of Silver-leaf Nightshade and Carolina horsenettle.
The taxon needs to be added to the iNat database.
Importantly, at least two other people got images of this species during the event, and my examination suggests each of our three observations represents a different individual (after I stared at the small black dots for awhile):
