Adults of an Arizona population of Dynastes granti Horn were observed feeding on the common tree, velvet ash, Fraxinus velutina Torry. Feeding damage was restricted to young branches and resulted in linear scars that exposed the cambium. An apparent defense behavior was observed when the beetles were disturbed: a stream of liquid was squirted from the tip of the abdomen. The recorded range of the species is extended to adjacent areas in southern Utah, western New Mexico, and northern Mexico.
