Is there a possibility that a male liosoma will come out of a parthenogenetic female? Thank you
Although I've heard many rumors they are - no valid data is available to support the facts of P liosoma/ Maximus being parthenogeneticParabuthus maximus, which is formerly P. liosoma is not parthenogenetic.
Yep, they come in gravid and people assume they're parthenogenetic. @ArachnoDrew and @brandontmyers are correct as well!Although I've heard many rumors they are - no valid data is available to support the facts of P liosoma/ Maximus being parthenogenetic
I'd say it's more of the fact they get wild caught gravid females that just magically produce broods on their own LOL
We've never have a WC P Maximus here, if ever they're breeding it with a different SP then shouldn't there be a scorpling that has a different color? I've read from an article onlinr that not all P Maximus are parthenogenetic, with regards to h longimanus being parthenogenetic, i can vouch for it since I've experienced it first hand. Got a 6i then molted into 7i, after a couple of months it went gravid. Not unless they can store sperm in they're body and not disappear while molting. Tomorrw I'll send a picture of my P. MaximusThe specimens are either WC adult females that are already gravid or someone bred the P. maximus and is lying to you or mistaken. Some breeders in the Philippines were also rumoring that H. longimanus was parthenogenetic, but this was a mistake. It is likely the same with P. maximus. Neither species have been observed to be parthenogenetic.
That's not likely, but you can send photos or post them here...the latter is probably better so that other people can see them too.
That's my P Maximus
