What Posted June 4, 2011 Report Share Posted June 4, 2011 So, I have a few adults and larvae of a local dune inhabiting species of tenebrionid, Coelus globosus, these are found in coastal dunes under native vegetation and iceplant in substrate that ranges from pure sand to a nearly 50/50 mix of organic matter and sand... My initial setup was two containers, one a mix of sand, peat, decaying wood, and leaf matter the other was pure sand. Neither container had any deaths in the 2 weeks I have had them set up but the mixed substrate definitely appears to be more active and hold moisture better so I sifted out the adults and larvae from the sand and added them to the other group. I have been feeding them rolled oats/pulverized dog food bits/living plant matter just as I do my Eleodes species... Does anyone have any commentary on my current methods or ideas for more successful keeping/breeding? I cant find any info on the life history of these, and would appreciate any previous experience with similar species. Pictures: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
