Emerald Euphoria (Euphoria fulgida) F2


Recommended Posts

Euphoria fulgida, the Emerald Euphoria - captive bred generation F2 is now emerging.  The original stock was collected in Kansas, from thistle flowers.  They measure around 17 mm, on average.  This species has a long larval diapause after making a cocoon.  The cocoons are made using clay soil - they don't seem to be able to form cocoons properly using organic substrate, as Gymnetis thula does.

Interestingly, the larvae grow to a much larger size than would seem necessary to produce an adult beetle of this size.

They're small, but yes, they make up for it in color!
