Found a couple of these guys a few weeks ago and have been obsessing ever since. After 1000+ thistle plants, I finally got enough yesterday for a reasonable colony attempt. The other one is Euphoria sepulcralis.

Just sifted through the substrate for the first time and thought I'd share a couple photos...

 

First, check out the fiery orange pearl effect on this one at certain angles. Another individual (shown) has it slightly, but not like this one.
