• New Classifieds - Open Beta

    The New Classifieds have entered Open Beta status and are now viewable to all registered users.

    Our New Classifieds can be reached by clicking "Classifieds" in the forum toolbar or menu. Any ads posted in the New Classifieds should be considered "real ads" and must follow our updated Classifieds Terms and Rules. Ads that do not meet our updated Classifieds Terms and Rules will be deleted, and warnings, without points, will be issued. While our current Classifieds forums will remain viewable during the Open Beta period, and current ads posted there can be bumped, new ads must be posted in our New Classifieds so you can familiarize yourself with the new format. The Classifieds forums will be closed once the Open Beta period ends.

    A tutorial on how to use the New Classifieds has been created and can be found here.

I plucked a spermatophore off a log I have in with numerous Lychas buchari. I thought it looked a little dark, but under the microscope I was amazed to see 2 spermatophore twins joined at the base and only one had been spent, the other still retained the seminal fluid. Anyone heard of that before...?? When manipulating them for inspection they broke apart, they seem to be joined very thinly at the base. The spent one snapped off. Clearly a bit dried when I found them, but still not too bad....

How's that for desired proliferation.

I think Eric Ythier posted a pic of it before.
