    Velvet ant

    No - velvet ants are specialized parasites of solitary Hymenoptera. Most of the larger US species (such as Dasymutilla spp.) are parasitic on cicada killer wasps (Sphecius spp).

    C gloriosa emerged

    On his rusty website (Elytra and Antenna) he says that Beyer's scarab "usually becomes an adult in less than 1 year from ova being laid", suggesting that the book instructions worked well for rearing beyeri. http://www.angelfire.com/oh3/elytraandantenna/USIUSInsec

    Love it. And I noticed you can attach pictures in PM now. Or maybe i just never found the right way in the previous version.

    Yes, the colors are amazing. Do you need larvae or adults? I should have more adults soon as they emerge but I'm not sure how to sex them. Life still overwhelming in the Amazon?

    C gloriosa emerged

    Yes, I do. Unfortunately no detailed information on dealing with the difficulties of C beyeri.

    Hello from so cal

    Welcome! CA is a biodiversity hotspot for darkling beetles. I have seen some very interesting species in the forests and semideserts.

    C gloriosa emerged

    Hi Shade, great to hear from you as always. I'll be sure to add the fresh Juniper especially the tender, new growth. Fortunately I have a few big Junipers in my yard. It does seem like Chrysina is a bit more challenging than the other US species that are commonly raised. I have heard from a couple of breeders that C beyeri is a big challenge to get to pupate. Anybody get C beyeri to successfully pupate? I have asked this question before and I received no responses so I assume the answer is no. I am going to get the 3 different Chrysinas this summer from Arizona so I'm going to give it a try. Do you have any suggestions on what I might try? Thanks, Garin

    Hello from so cal

    Hi all... My name is nick. 30 year old in so cal. My wife and I have had reptiles for most of our time together and currently are setting up a room specifically for our growing collection. I have decided after years of interest to dip my toes in the beetle world. Looking to pick up a few different species. I really really want a Hercules..haha but join the club. I cant wait to get my hands on a few of these beauties.

    Don't worry, now that your heat problem is solved. You will have many beautiful beetles in the future.

    I would provide them with Juniper cuttings now if they've already come up to the surface. They'll eat a lot of it if they're ready to start feeding. They prefer the tender, new growth. When I kept them, most of mine perished in the late third instar before they made pupal cells and then it looked like some more had died in the process of ecdysing into a pupa when I checked on the ones that did not emerge. None of the ones that failed to emerge had died as pupae.

    I'm having issues logging in. It'll tell me my username or password are invalid, and the only way to log in is by going through the password change prompt that logs you in after the change.

    Thoughts on new layout?

    I really like the new and upbeat look, the only thing that would be nice is if the background was a different color just so things look a little less similar to Mantidforum. Besides that, I think things look great!
