  1. Yeah that sounds good, with sand and the potting soil/coco fiber making up the bulk of the substrate.
  2. Sand and coconut fiber would suffice, rotten wood would be a luxury item, I never use it with desert Tenebs personally, as it's not a food source they come across regularly in the wild. Leaf litter would be good though.
  3. The ones I see here are Eleodes armata, Coelocnemis do not have femoral spines, and E.armata is distinguished from other Eleodes by having spines on all three pairs of femora, not just the front pair. As for the eggs, bury them in humid substrate, and hope for the best.
  4. Coelocnemis dilaticollis (formerly known as C.californica) are more difficult to breed than your average desert darkling beetle, they require a substrate of rotten wood to oviposit in and for the larvae to develop in, but the larvae are also very cannibalistic and need to be separated as soon as they hatch. Only a few people have reared Coelocnemis to adulthood, it's not an easy genus to work with.
  5. Hi there, I find those glowing click beetles in Miami sometimes.

  6. They're honestly more concerned about diseases that can affect plants than humans.
  7. That would be Coelocnemis dilaticollis, (formerly C.californica), there are no Coelocnemis in any of those pics. They are all Eleodes, the larger individuals with femoral spines on all pairs of legs are E.armata. Not sure what species the smaller ones are, but definitely some sort of Eleodes, Coelocnemis have golden hairs on their tibiae.
  8. This species ended up being very easy to breed and rear, here are some pictures of a pupa, a teneral adult, and a hardened CB adult: So, eggs hatch within a week, larvae take a couple weeks to mature, and pupae develop in only a week or so as well. Fast growing species!
  9. Hello, welcome to the forum, nice to see another fan of Tenebrionids here! 😁 As for changing your profile info, just click the little menu button on the top right, click "account", then "account settings", then scroll down and click on "edit profile".
  10. This generation's looking quite secure, some excess too! 😁
  11. Well if it is a prolapse, then there is no treatment, other than to let her be and hope it doesn't shorten her life much. Doesn't appear to be that severe of a prolapse, and if she's still eating and pooping and stuff, she should be fine.
  12. That's weird, almost looks like a prolapse, you have any better pictures?
