Good job :)!!!! Lets hope you spread some Cormocephalus ssp around... there doesnt seem to be that may around... In fact, i dont know anybody else who keeps them ( or could identify his own centipedes as cormocephalus... ). This genus is very mysterious to me... How big are those specimens? It defenetly seems like a specie of interest if we can define that ssp as communal since those look really pretty too, hmmmmmmmmmm. If you hatch some, i'd defenetly be interested in getting some from you :).

phil.

this spec. Madagascar is rather small,... max. size 10cm (4").

But you also have bigger Cormocephalus specie:
like this Cormocephalus nitidus (South Africa)

(for several years i've been trying to get these to breed,.. but no succes,
these i don't keep communal,... but they don't show much agression when placed together either)
