Does anybody want to tell what beetles they have currently?

 

I have:

  1. Eleodes longicollis (3 Females)
  2. Eleodes suturalis (1 Male, 3 Females, Lots of larvae)
  3. Bothrotes sp. (5 Females, 5 Males)

Unfortunately my Amblycheila cylindriformis died, and I have not found any eggs from them  :(

I haven't seen any eggs or larvae from her yet. I'm trying to feed her dry dog food and dead Honey Locust leaves like I do with the rest of my darklings.
