Abstract

The Blue Tier region in northeast Tasmania is home to several flightless endemic stag beetle
species. Due to their limited mobility some of these have restricted distributions and are
considered narrow-range endemics. Five apterous lucanids are known to occur in the area,
of which two, Lissotes rudis and L. obtusatus, have a saproxylic (log-dwelling) larval phase,
while the remaining three, Hoplogonus simsoni, H. bornemisszai and
H. vanderschoori each have edaphic (soil-dwelling) larvae.
