Small taxonomy question

Recommended Posts

1. The animals depicted in that books are most likely Gromphadorhina portentosa, and are certainly not Elliptorhina.

2. Yes, members of the genus Elliptorhina were previously in the Gromphadorhina genus so G.laevigata and E.laevigata are the same creature also known as v-horns (but not the creature in that book).
