Gymnetis caseyi emerged today!


Recommended Posts

Or at least, it surfaced today! Not sure how long since it emerged from the pupal cell (it took approximately a month to pupate and surface), but tonight I found it on top of the dirt crawling around. It was a dark greenish-brown/black at first, but after I took it out, within about five minutes it dried off and the yellow coloration appeared. It's a gorgeous, perfect beetle, currently exploring its new little tank and stuffing its face with some beetle jelly.
This was my first try at raising beetle larvae, and so far it's been a great success! There are two others pupating in the same container, so I imagine they'll be surfacing within a few days too.
