Description

Odontolabis castelnaudi is a type of stag beetle belongs to the family Lucanidae. This species can grow up to a size of about 90 mm in length. It has a black head, black mandibles, black prothorax and black legs with yellow wings sheaths. Its mentum is much wider and broader than the pronotum. Mandibles are narrow, branched into two tips with a very small rounded tooth on the second. Underneath the tip lie a few miniature spherical teeth. At the base another tooth projects inwards. The male look like O. femoralis, but can be distinguished by the polished black colour of the entire underside of the body and the tibia and femora of the legs of O. castelnaudi. Meanwhile the female has smooth elytra of bright yellow with the small head and mandibles reduced in size (Tung, 1983).
