    Hello from ny

    Welcome

    Deilelater physoderus

    Very little seems to be scientifically known of its biology but since it is a close relative of Pyrophorus care is probably very similar. Hisserdude has a caresheet for Pyrophorus on his blog.

    Inbreeding

    You might wish to view this: In any case, it is known to be definitely harmful for at least some insect species; there was a research study somewhere documenting that a coccinellid species was harmed by it. I think there were also studies on Drosophila and Tribolium showing the same.

    hello, all

    Welcome! Keep in mind that many species are not commercially available, so you may have to catch them yourself

    State of the Hobby(TM)

    You live in Europe, where non-dead exotic beetles are often legal to import and much more popular than they are in the US

    Embaphion muricatum Questions

    Aggressive? I have never heard of darklings actually running towards their perceived threats. Quite odd

    Embaphion muricatum Questions

    Hisserdude has quit the hobby (see roachforum.com announcement) He has a caresheet for E on his blog though. If wild non-mealworm darklings live near you, you might wish to keep some of those as well/instead. Many interesting darklings have never been kept in captivity
