Oryctes nasicornis grypus breeding 2013

I received very early L1 larvae of this subspecies of O. nasicornis (coming from Spain, South Pyrenean region) around 1 year and a half ago. For the moment, I am still waiting for their pupation to start. The weights all range from 19 g up to 25 g, which is extraordinary for this ssp.. I'm used to weights of around 15 g for larvae of this ssp., but 19-25 g are comparable to weights of larvae of medium sized D. tityus or medium to big sized Xylotrupes gideon ssp.. These might thus become adults over 40 mm big (I've only seen 40+ mm sized Oryctes nasicornis grypus beetles once in my life)!
