Conibius seriatus


Recommended Posts

A pretty new micro Teneb I'm working with. Might be a new state record for Idaho! Seem to be associated with ant nests, but so far they appear to breed in captivity readily outside of said nests. :)

This species ended up being very easy to breed and rear, here are some pictures of a pupa, a teneral adult, and a hardened CB adult:

So, eggs hatch within a week, larvae take a couple weeks to mature, and pupae develop in only a week or so as well. Fast growing species!
