Intraspecific hybridization


Recommended Posts

What do you guys think about intraspecific hybridization between Allomyrina dichotoma septentrionalis and Allomyrina dichotoma tunobosonis? I know hybridization may produce sterile offspring but I want to know what you guys think.

I'm all for keeping strains and subspecies separate to preserve bloodlines, but like Ratmosphere said, you are free to do whatever you want. :)

Interesting topic. I think the concern most people have is irresponsible containment/labeling of hybrids. The idea of someone selling a hybrid Allomyrina dichotoma septentrionalis x Allomyrina dichotoma tunobosonis as just one or the other could really disrupt things.
