Hi I'm Conner, I'm 27, I live in the UK with my wife a two boys. I wanted to raise and breed beetles after trying to raise BDFB larvae to adulthood, still not successful πŸ˜‚ that is now my side project (because I don't want to give upπŸ˜‚) I recently received a sexed pair ofΒ Mecynorrhina oberthuri (tiger flower beetle) larvae. If anyone can give me some tips with this species that would be appreciated πŸ™‚ I also have an Instagram run by my wife and me https://www.instagram.com/woodys_bugs/

Not sure on the care with those larvae, must be similar to other Mecynorrhina species though. I use leaf litter and a small amount of rotting wood or organic soil. Here's a link to my Insta too! Welcome!


Yeah, I couldn't find much on this species, so I am copying requirements from otherΒ Mecynorrhina sp. Thanks! πŸ™‚
