I agree with John. I have three sub-adult Calisgoga Longitarsus that I'm raising up, one of my favorites!

The genus is a mess, unless [finally] any recent work has been done I am unaware of, there are 5 valid species names under 2 genera, the different colored specimens might be different species but it will likely take somebody to turn up mature males of each "color" to really see if they are.

Miguel, I would love to breed this species but my luck has reversed from always ending up with males to only having females - and cannot locate a male :confused:

their colors are really hard to get pics of. i have some that i know are normally what we would call longi, collected in only longi territory (thev come from mariposa and like, humboldt counties, as far as known range in documentation. longi have a huge range that goes from central CA up into OR and over into NV) that look just like that. these were longi from the southern most we collected, iirc... but it was a few years ago now


the point is... the colors do terrible things to cameras and are not to be trusted at all
