Current Beetles

Recommended Posts

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.

Well keep me updated, I'm very curious on how well the Epitragini would do in culture, hope you can get her to breed!

Awesome, would LOVE to see what the larvae of that species look like! Hope you can rear them to maturity successfully! :)
