Viability of Half Produced Ooths

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately one of the I. deropeltiformis females I found last week died with an ooth still being exuded. Does anyone think it would still be viable even though she didn't drop it like they normally do?

Is the thing closed? If so, I would expect it to hatch.

Looks to be but I'll put it under the scope to check. Not so sure about the part still stuck inside her, so I'd guess that'll be the crucial point.

It's unlikely it will be viable at all, but there's no harm in trying, from my research I'm under the impression that if an ooth is compromised in any way, it's basically a loss.
