Adult Female in Birthing Chamber
There are a multitude of these guys in my yard during Summer consisting of some pretty interesting morphs(particularly high intensity green marking). Unfortunately I wasn't that interested in keeping them until a couple months ago when they all had already gone into hiding for Winter, but I did collect a few before that(along with the tiny ones that keep showing up in a couple of my isopod enclosures from a substrate I mixed in that was evidently full of offspring from when I previously bred them). Looks like I'll have to wait at least a few more moths to collect some of the extra cool morphs, but I don't mind waiting.
Beautiful!!!!! Next On my need to have list!!
Thanks! When I first saw these guys I also knew I needed to have them! They're a great species, relatively easy to breed with stunning looks!
Just had a couple Eupolyphaga sinensis"White Eye" nymphs molt into beautiful adult males! Here a few pics of them and them compared to the females.
Congrats on the adult males, they are beautiful! That's definitely a species I gotta own one day!
Thanks! They were a very pleasant surprise, I was just switching my colony to a new enclosure and then these guys popped up in the substrate! You definitely should, they're my favorite Corydiid that I currently have, I love the maroon coloration on the nymphs and adult females as well as the pronounced bronze setae!
White Porcellio leavis(currently trying to isolate the morph)
Brown Bordered Porcellio laevis(currently trying to isolate the morph)
Orange Bordered Porcellio laevis(currently trying to isolate the morph)
White Porcellio spinicornis(currently attempting to isolate the morph)
Kyle Kandilian believes that this color morph is likely environmentally related, but just to test out his theory, I isolated my lightest colored individual(that happens to be a gravid female) and will see what happens.
I just received twenty nine larvae of this bulbous darkling beetle(adult females) free of charge from a very generous hobbyist, @lovebugfarm. Thanks again man!
Gray Trachelipus rathkii(currently trying to isolate the morph)
Calico Trachelipus rathkii(currently trying to isolate the morph)
Mancae from Calico Trachelipus rathkii
Black-Form Adult Male Parcoblatta pennsylvanica
Freshly molted Blaberus craniifer nymph(looks like someone's death's head marking is becoming more pronounced)
Blaberus craniifer is awesome. Quite beautiful.
Thanks, even more so at adulthood!
Nice ones, but aren't this just arachnids and myriapods? But a quick question, do you have any tips for the gluespitter? if that's not the english name, i mean the last spider.
Yes, but I figured it's just most logical to post pics in this section since the vast majority of the arthropods I keep fit into it and only a couple don't.
Tips on specifically what about them? If you just mean general care, these are very easy to keep. They are extremely tolerant of dryness, only eat about once every couple weeks at most, and seem to prefer relatively large prey for their size(for example, adults really like eating house flies).
While going through moist leaf litter, I found a few individuals (around 6) of this large and cryptic springtail species of the order Entomobryomorpha. Hopefully these guys do well for me as apparently they seem easy at first but then cultures tend to eventually fizzle out.
Adult Female Parcoblatta pennsylvanica Carrying Ootheca
First ootheca I've gotten from this species, it ended up being a large one!
Therea olegrandjeani Hatchling
So excited, just got my first load of babies! There were many more where this guy came from (approximately 55), but this was the only decent pic I could get, they're only around the size of my Isotoma delta right now.
