Phasmid Update

Post by Salt on Sat Jan 02, 2016 11:37 am

I haven't updated any journals for a long time, so thought I would do some updates:)

Peruphasma schultei: I currently have 2 adult males and 6 nymphs, of which most are pre-sub adult I believe. If you guys think back to some of my earlier updates I had three nymphs left after fungal infections devastated my nymphs, so I obtained an adult female, two males and three nymphs at the AES show back in October. The female died after a month without laying eggs and one nymph died a day after the show. The sixth nymph hatched in November from two eggs I salvaged from fungus in August, when it was supposed to hatch. Apart from the newest nymph, all of these guys live with the C.morosus.

Sipyloidea sipylus: I gave four adults away and one died from being sliced open by a thorn whilst falling, leaving nine adults. I have currently about 200 eggs from these guys which I am selling to anyone in the UK mainland. 

Oreophoetes peruana: I have seven left after a failed moult to adulthood and two random deaths a few months into adulthood. I have only collected 15 eggs so far, hopefully I'll collect enough to be able to sell and exchange the eggs.

Lopaphus sp"Cuc Phuong": I have seven left, with quite few now being sub adults so not long to the glorious blue and yellow colours. These guys all live with the S.sipylus and are all thankfully doing well; they were rather reluctant to start feeding for the most part so next generation I'll try different food plants and approaches.

Nice to hear about these again, I'm sorry to hear about some of the losses but we can't gain without loosing something [that's a good life lesson Smile ]

I can't wait to hear that you have successfully bred them later in 2016!
