Diplocentrus cf. tehuacanus, gravid female, in situ (Puebla, near Tehuacan).


Diplocentrus cf. tehuacanus, male (in captivity).

Female gave birth in captivity but ate all her young :(

I had no idea Diplocentrus ranged that far south.
From a communication I received, they can be be found throughout souther Mexico. I can't verify that personally, but I have no reason to doubt my source, who lurks on here sometimes.

You're welcome. And I love Diplocentrus sp. as well. I have 3 different species, I keep 2 D. melici, 2 D. cf. tehuacanus, and 10 D. bereai (6+2 born in captivity, see other thread).

That's great! I've collected and kept D. lindo and D. whitei. D. whitei is my favorite specie so far. But I have a lot to learn about them all, let alone Diplocentrus!!! Wonderful genus. :)
