Larva, Grant's Hercules Beetle - Dynastes grantii

Larva, Grant's Hercules Beetle - Dynastes grantii
Madera Canyon, Santa Cruz County, Arizona, USA
February 3, 2021
Size: 42 mm
Today, I checked all the containers with developing larvae. Approximately the surviving larvae represent forty percent of the original eggs. These larvae ranged from 10 mm to over 40 mm long. The larva in this image was the largest of them all and it measured 42 mm. Could this be L2?
