I've been wandering why the males of this species looked oddly similar to Compsodes males so I decided to do some digging. Then I ended up finding a diagram of Myrmecoblatta wheeleri and realized I could be wrong about the ID on this species! It seems that I might have Compsodes species instead of Myrmecoblatta. lol

Really, are Compsodes that small?!? Could it just be because they are closely related, or did the diagram of the Myrmecoblatta wheeleri portray the males as looking way different than Compsodes?

Nevermind, I found that diagram of M.wheeleri, they look nothing like these! So looks like these really are Compsodes, (probably C.schwarzi), which are still really awesome, (and really high up on my wish list)! :) Same with these guys here.

Whelp....my colony has grown big so I may start offering them

Well glad they are doing well for you! Would love to pick some up, unfortunately I am on a strict "no new bugs" regime since we are in the process of trying to find a new place, hopefully I'll move to a new place soon with room for more new bugs! :)

I'm sure they'll still be available by the time you are ready to pick them up because they are going to be quite pricey. lol

Tried taking some pics, but due to their photophobic nature I couldn't get any decent group shots :( 

Most of my first batch nymphs are presubs and subs now so I should be seeing adults soon.
