 Megapenthes stigmosus   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The specimen of Megapenthes stigmosus (LeConte) pictured below was collected on August 27, 2004 at Mount Uniake, Hants County, Nova Scotia, Canada by D. MacDonald in a spruce beetle trap.
Megapenthes is a large Nearctic genus with 29 species known from North America.
In Greek mythology, Megapenthes was a son of Proetus.

 Proetus
Later Proetus' son, Megapenthes, exchanged kingdoms with Acrisius' grandson Perseus.
Sometimes the madness of the Argive women, and their cure by Bias and Melampus in exchange for a third of the kingdom each, is said to have occurred during the reign of Proetus.
However, it is also said to have taken place during the reign of Megapenthes' grandson Anaxagoras, and since it was Argos that was ruled over by three kings, the former version may be a simple mistake.

 Argos, Greek Mythology Link - www.maicar.com
During the reign of Proetus 1, the king's daughters went mad, and Melampus 1—an excellent seer who understood the language of birds and worms, and the first to devise a cure by means of drugs—healed the daughters of Proetus 1 of their madness, receiving for that the third part of the kingdom of Argos.
But this perhaps happened during the reign of Anaxagoras, the son or grandson of Megapenthes 2; under his reign, it is said, the women went mad and they were healed by Melampus 1, who received two-thirds of Anaxagoras' kingdom in return.
Melampus 1 was son of Amythaon 1 of Pylos, son of Cretheus 1 (the founder of Iolcus), son of Thessalian Aeolus 1, son of Hellen 1 (eponym of the Hellenes), son either of Deucalion 1 (the man who survived The Flood), or of Zeus.

Meanwhile Helen went to the chest where she kept the lovely dresses which she had made with her own hands, and took out one that was largest and most beautifully enriched with embroidery; it glittered like a star, and lay at the very bottom of the chest.
A maid servant brought them water in a beautiful golden ewer, and poured it into a silver basin for them to wash their hands, and she drew a clean table beside them; an upper servant brought them bread and offered them many good things of what there was in the house.
Then they laid their hands upon the good things that were before them, but as soon as they had had had enough to eat and drink Telemachus and Pisistratus yoked the horses, and took their places in the chariot.

When Perseus 1 had accidentally killed his father in law Acrisius, he was ashamed to come to Argos and claim the inheritance of the man who had died by his hand; so instead he went to Megapenthes 2 at Tiryns and effected an exchange of kingdoms with him, surrendering Argos into his hands.
Some have said that it was Megapenthes 2 who ended the life of Perseus 1, who was his cousin, since Megapenthes 2's father was Proetus 1, brother of Acrisius; his mother was Stheneboea, the daughter of a Lycian king.
Some say that Megapenthes 2 had a son Argeus 1, in turn father of Anaxagoras, also king of Argos; but others say that Anaxagoras was the child of Megapenthes 2, as also was Iphianira 1, who married Melampus 1 (one of the SEERS) [Apd.2.2.2, 2.4.4; Dio.4.68.4-5; Pau.2.16.3, 2.18.4].

Having killed Acrisius, Perseus, who was next in line for the throne, gave the kingdom to Megapenthes son of Proetus and took over Megapenthes' kingdom of Tiryns.
In any case, early Greek literature reiterates that manslaughter, even involuntary, requires the exile of the slaughterer, expiation and ritual purification.
The exchange might well have been a creative solution to a difficult problem; however, Megapenthes would have been required to avenge his father, which, in legend, he did, but only at the end of Perseus' long and successful reign.
