  1. I may have missed posting info for the September meeting, but rest assured there was no catastrophic club melt-down and that meeting still happened, ha ha. The October meeting will be on the 16th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, on Skype. As per usual invertebrates will be discussed, and I would like to discuss the topic of next year's calendar (return to physical meetings hopefully!) and the funding of a new club website/club library as well. Looking forward to seeing all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts
  2. Hullo everyone! The Invertebrate Club of Southern California's August meeting will be on the 21st (Saturday), from 10:00-11:30 AM, via Skype. I have a few announcements to go over but otherwise bring your scientific names and your collection updates and I’ll see you there! Sneak peak: some hikes are being planned... Thanks, Arthroverts
  3. Hello everyone, the ICSC July meeting will be on the 17th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, via Skype. I will be back for this meeting after being away from the last two, and I'm excited to see everyone! This month Dr. Philip S. Ward from UC Davis has agreed to come to the meeting to discuss ants with us! He was the one who described Camponotus us-CA01 as C. johnsonii, and has been working with Southern California ants for many years now, including the elusive pseudomyrmecines the ant keepers amongst us love so much. Bring your questions and thoughts on all things myrmecological, and don't forget your scientific names, this isn't one you'll want to miss! Anywho, looking forward to this meeting, can't wait to see all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts
  4. Hello all, the Invertebrate Club of Southern California's May meeting will be on the 15th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, on Skype. We will be holding another raffle this meeting, and invertebrates are again the object of discussion ;D! Also, planning a hike/collecting trip in the Riverside area for the end of this month after the fantastic trip we had in April, stay tuned for more information. Thanks, Arthroverts
  5. Hello all, the Invertebrate Club of Southern California's April meeting will be on the 17th (Saturday), from 10:00-11:30 AM, via Skype. We will be discussing invertebrates as per usual, and there will be another (free) raffle at this meeting. We are also trying to organize a hike for the evening of the 18th (Sunday) in the San Gabriel Mountains at a spot along Highway 39. If interested please message me or email us through the club email address for further particulars. Thanks, Arthroverts
  6. Good grief! This is terrible, I forgot to do this until the 8th of March! Anyways, the Invertebrate Club of Southern California's March meeting will be on the 20th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, via Skype. Unfortunately we are still meeting virtually, but fortunately there will be a raffle this meeting! Looking forward to seeing all who can make it (if I can figure out my camera problem with Skype that is, otherwise I'll just hear you...). Thanks, Arthroverts
  7. Meeting today! Don't forget to bring your questions for Dr. Bond, I'm looking forward to seeing all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts
  8. Hello all, the Invertebrate Club of Southern California's February meeting will be on the 20th (Saturday), from 10:00-11:30 AM, on Skype. Dr. Jason E. Bond, who described Cryptocteniza kawtak, worked on the 2016 Aphonopelma revision and the 2012 Aptostichus revision (along with a small host of other works), will be coming to answer questions and discuss invertebrates (if all goes according to plan)! Bring your questions and scientific names, I know I am definitely going to be asking him about what we as hobbyists can do to protect C. kawtak and other California native mygalomorphs in the wild. Looking forward to seeing all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts
  9. Despite my sleepiness after a crazy week, we all had a great time discussing mantids, roaches, ants, Triops, and all manner of other invertebrates (and a few vertebrates...) at this past January meeting. Though I unfortunately did not have the new T-shirt design ready in time, we did take advantage of our ability to share our collections via video: MrGhostMantis showed us his Deroplatys truncata, Hierodula membranacea, and Heterochaeta orientalis, sgvmantid showed us his two Stagmomantis limbata, and I showed some of my roaches and beetles. We also got to meet two new club members, XxSpiderQueenxX and RunDMLee, which was awesome. All in all we had a great time, and I'm already looking forward to the next one. Thanks, Arthroverts
  10. And we're back! Happy New Year everyone, the ICSC is officially two years old! The ICSC January meeting will be on the 16th (Saturday), from 10:00-11:30 AM, via Skype. We will be discussing invertebrates (of course) and perhaps talk about guest speakers to invite for the 2021 meetings. I also hope to reveal a new club T-shirt design, if I can finish it in time... Thanks, Arthroverts
  11. Reptile Super Show and Reptilian Nation are always good shows. I don't expect us to see expos return before summer unfortunately though, if then. Thanks, Arthroverts
  12. The glare from the flash makes it difficult but they do look like a Tylobolus sp. Thanks, Arthroverts
  13. Hello all, the Invertebrate Club of Southern California's monthly meeting is this Saturday (21st), and we're pushing back the start to 11:00 and going to 12:30. We will be meeting on Skype. Since we take a break from meeting in December this is the last club meeting of 2020 (and yes, we are combining the San Diego chapter meeting with the main meeting). We will be having our Thanksgiving-for-Christmas-in-November event at this meeting, and as such only club members are allowed to attend. Looking forward to seeing all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts

Thanks, Arthroverts
  15. I know there's Repticon in Costa Mesa come November, but I don't know if it's still gonna happen. In January the Reptile Super Show is supposed to happen but again I'm worried it might now happen. Thanks, Arthroverts
  16. Forgot to mention, the San Diego Chapter of the club is also up and running (led by @Dragozap), the September meeting for the chapter will be on the 20th (Sunday), from 4:30-6:00 PM, on Skype. Meeting link coming soon. Thanks, Arthroverts
  17. Sorry for the break in posting meetings, been busy. The September meeting will be the 19th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, on Skype. Meeting link available to those interested in attending. Thanks, Arthroverts
  18. Ha ha, yes, it is both the bane and the boon of beetle keepers the world over. Sometimes I wonder how people who keep Megasoma and Dorcus do it... Thanks, Arthroverts
  19. Welcome to the forum! May you find all that you seek here. Sorry to hear about your S. aloeus female, the invertebrate hobby is definitely not like keeping tortoises or many parrots, which may outlive you. But congratulations on the 50 larvae! Thanks, Arthroverts
  20. Great information to know. This does beg the question...how in the world do you find this out @Hisserdude? Do you have time to burn and just go looking for improper usage of names ;D ? Thanks, Arthroverts
  21. Great information to know. This does beg the question...how in the world do you find this out @Hisserdude? Do you have time to burn and just go looking for improper usage of names ;D ? Thanks, Arthroverts
  22. Whereabouts in SoCal did you find them if you don't mind me asking? They seem like perfect, corresponding counterparts to Nosoderma diabolicum Phloeodes diabolicus. Thanks, Arthroverts
  23. No interest in tenebrionids? SoCal has an awesome selection when it comes to darklings... Invertebrate Club of Southern California already does collecting trips :)... Thanks, Arthroverts
  24. Currently redoing our club calendar, I'll upload it on Beetle Forum once it is completed. We are still meeting virtually via Skype. Thanks, Arthroverts
  25. The water crystals I suggested above are sold at many home improvement stores like Home Depot and Lowe's; basically these. Thanks, Arthroverts
