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.
