VERGARA, OLIVIA E  and  JEREZ, VIVIANE. Conservation status of Chiasognathus granti Stephens 1831 (Coleoptera: Lucanidae) in Chile. Rev. chil. hist. nat. [online]. 2009, vol.82, n.4, pp.565-576. ISSN 0716-078X.

Based on information of large body size, charismatic, umbrella and Rare species, the Conservation strategies have analyzed the diversity of Chile. Define endemism areas, priorities conservation areas and geographic areas with high phylogenetic value has been the aims of our studies in beetles. An emblematic species for the Chilean entomologic community is the stag beetle C. granti. We assign priorities for the conservation of C. granti through conservation priority indexes (SUMIN and CPI) based on literature, reference collection and field studies. C. granti can be considered Rare by SUMIN index and Vulnerable by CPI index. We concluded that C. granti is Vulnerable with a high probability of extinction in Chile; this situation could affect the survival of populations in Argentina.
