0.1 2" Homoeomma orellanai (mature?)
She tore up her molt a bit but I managed to get this picture.
Does her spermatheca looked sclerotized/fully developed?
My Homoeomma chilensis had more developed spermathecae, both of them, and neither gave me an egg sac after pairing. If that helps.
 
@VanessaS
Yeah, her spermatheca don't look dark enough or developed enough to me but I just thought I would see what others thought.
Thank you for your input.
Can you tell how big your chilensis females were when you breed them?
 
@VanessaS
Great picture. Those definitely look more developed.
I hope your females produce eggsacks for you in the future. This is such a great species and should be more readily available.
 
@CitizensOfTheWomb I think if I am going to get it to work, I will have to buy an incubator. I can't provide the cool down that they seem to require to get a successful egg sac. I will likely need it for the Bonnetina sp. Chamela as well, so it might be a good investment. I have a bit of time, since neither of those species males are mature.
 
@CitizensOfTheWomb I've been looking on Kijiji (Canadian Craigslist) for used ExoTerra incubators. They are going for about $150cdn. That is almost half of what they are new, when you factor in taxes. When I think of the return if any of those species are successful, because of it, it is worth it.
