The male of Darwin's Stag Beetle drawn on one kind in 25 kinds of Gay natural history magazine 100-year commemorative stamps issued with dust in 1948 is Stag beetle famous for that the form has changed and the beautiful thing of color from ancient times. Although a color is brown, reflection like a rainbow is carried out according to the hit condition of light. It lives only in the high ground in the Andes of dust, and mountain, such as Ecuador and Bolivia, requires the similar kind. Although various Stag beetle is in the world now, Darwin's Stag Beetle is the oldest kind and is considered that a primitive form is shown. It turns out that the fossil of this kind of female was found from near the Caspian Sea, and it was widely distributed also over the Eurasian Continent and was prosperous in the once warm time. What environmental change has influenced how until it declines gradually, narrows a habitat region and comes to maintain life at Andes mountain at last?
