California Broad-Necked Darkling Beetle


Recommended Posts

Coelocnemis dilaticollis (formerly known as C.californica) are more difficult to breed than your average desert darkling beetle, they require a substrate of rotten wood to oviposit in and for the larvae to develop in, but the larvae are also very cannibalistic and need to be separated as soon as they hatch. Only a few people have reared Coelocnemis to adulthood, it's not an easy genus to work with.
