  1. How do I get started breeding Tenebrionidae? Specifically Asbolus, Cryptoglossa, Ceronopus, Embaphion, Edrotes and Eleodes. Substrate? Substrate depth? Keeping methods for larvae (housing one species altogether, or individually)? Food for larvae? Leaving larvae in with the adults? If not, what size container to house larvae in? etc. - Jacob
  2. Where do you buy mazama? I don't see them for sale much
  3. I think it's interesting how some species need such specific conditions in captivity, and even then don't always do very well.
  4. Is Lucanus placidus cultured/kept in captivity at all? From what I can find on the species, it is not, but I am not sure. - Jacob 🖖
  5. Key word is "about". We'll se how it goes
  6. OK. I aim to get some Vesperelater arizonicus at some point soon, as I have some friends in AZ who I may be able to convince to find me some.
  7. I am trying to remember which species of bioluminescent Elateridae live in the Southwestern US. Can anyone help me out? - Jacob
  8. I have a few questions regarding beetles. How long is a female Dorcus brevis supposed to live in captivity? How large are the eggs of Dorcus brevis? How long do they sit until they hatch? (the eggs) How long are a male and female Dynastes tityus supposed to live in captivity? How do I go about breeding D. tityus? How large of containers would the larvae need? - Jacob

  10. Ah, that makes more sense than them being prepupal. I still have a lot to learn about keeping beetles : )
  11. They may be in a prepupal state. How long have they been like this?
