    Got mine from BioQuip

    Emerging

    You do not want to handle them right after they eclose. Give them at least a week and a half to two weeks to mature and become active then proceed to handle them.

    Advice on my artificial pupal cells

    I agree with Beetle-Experience on the dimension of the chambers. I'd like to add that you can also use wet paper towels, peat pots, and wet toilet paper roll to construct artificial pupal chambers.

    artificial pupal cells

    Looks good

    artificial pupal cells

    Good luck! Feel free to ask any questions should you need any clarification!

    artificial pupal cells

    Yeah vertically like they're standing up. I wouldn't cover them and tilt the container since the pupae will wiggle around and may fall out.

    artificial pupal cells

    I made mine vertically since Japanese rhinos are known to construct vertical pupal chambers. Your chambers appear to be a little bit too wide so if I were you I'd make them vertically without being too wide. I would upload a picture of mine but I threw the foam away after they eclosed due to molds.

    Intraspecific hybridization

    Yeah I'm not a fan of hybridization and inbreeding but I'm willing to learn more about it.

    Disturbing pupa?

    Okay then leave them be and wait until they've lost mobility to relocate them into artificial pupal chambers.

    Disturbing pupa?

    Just make sure the females have completed their pupal chambers and have lost mobility or they will construct a new pupal chamber once you've destroyed the original ones, or they will crawl around and even out of the artificial pupal chambers.

    Intraspecific hybridization

    What do you guys think about intraspecific hybridization between Allomyrina dichotoma septentrionalis and Allomyrina dichotoma tunobosonis? I know hybridization may produce sterile offspring but I want to know what you guys think.

    Disturbing pupa?

    Surround the peat pot with some substrate to help anchoring it down or it may fall over during eclosion.

    Disturbing pupa?

    That's pretty good, just spray water to make sure it's moist.

    Disturbing pupa?

    That's a nice looking male! I made mine vertical with a slight incline about 15-20 degrees.
