Dynastes hercules paschoali: unfortunately, two males have died during prepupal stage (the one of 97 g max. weight died while pupating... The one of 111 g died in prepupal stage...):

All in all not too bad results, and the good news is that I have a lot of larvae from the breeding, so I can have another try! To be continued!
