    A Cryptocercus Question for the Experts

    Did the guide tell you it will take 5 years?

    A Cryptocercus Question for the Experts

    I suggest sticking with the rotten wood.

    hello from kansas!

    Welcome! D. punctata are similar to hissers in care but it's hard to get much production. You'd probably never see 800 at once no matter how much work you put into it. It is a unique species. The D. punctata I have originally came from Roth, but maybe somebody else has something very similar.

    Dwarf white isopods vs giganteus nymphs

    I think the tomentosa would feed on dead ones but have no ability to harm healthy giganteus.
  6. You could try putting petroleum jelly only where they are chewing.

    Hi from Germany

    When will you travel to find your Loboptera?

    Porcellio expansus

    I offer a few damp areas and a few dryer areas in the enclosure.

    Porcellio expansus

    Porcellio expansus has been the most sought after species for a while. They grow very large for a terrestrial isopod (many times the biggest most people see in their back yards) and older males have extremely long uropods. There are two different forms, one where the "skirt" (margin of the pronotum) is light orange and one where the skirt is yellow. Porcellio succinctus looks similar but the skirt is white.

    Hawai'ian cockroach stowaway

    Congratulations on your find, hopefully you get a good culture going.

    Porcellio expansus

    They like moisture and ventilation which can be a little trying at times.

    Hello from Georgia

    What species do you have?
  14. Allpet Roaches

    Hawai'ian cockroach stowaway

    Looks pretty neat, but you might have to wait till its an adult to figure it out.

    Blaberus giganteus as feeders

    They can do pretty well, just not enough to spare too many.

    Isopods slowly dying off

    What's the ventilation? Do you know what species you have?

    Isopod Hobby

    I bought a copy of that book and there is NO mention of isopods, not a single word. I wish I hadn't bought it.
  18. The top do all look like craniifer and I don't know if you can tell on the little guys unless you compare a picture of both at that size.

    Isopod Hobby

    I believe the correct answer is located in posts 2 and 3.

    Isopod Hobby

    I think the oldest book with a few paragraphs I have is from 1989. I don't consider someone explaining how to keep isopods in a jar is even remotely evidence of an actual hobby, but I am interested in finding the oldest source I can.

    That is disappointing, they look like they have the body structure for it.

    Approved Common Names - American Cockroach Society

    Thanks Hisserdude. Wouldn't Lanxoblatta be better off as bark mimic, rough bark doesn't do any justice to it's properties. Pseudoglomeris magnifica = Wouldn't Emerald pillbug roach be more descriptive? Is Thorax in the hobby? improcera means little I thing mega sounds like Megablocks or Megatron and giant is simpler. Comments ? Do you mean 115 for Paraplecta? I identified them to Paraplecta some years back but I forget which species.

    144. Panchlora sp. "speckled" = Speckled Banana Cockroach The common name list will be open to additions and suggestions for updates. The number and common name generally will not change, but scientific name changes and new species or subspecies can be added as they become established in culture. Suggestions will be incorporated (or not), then deleted. LOOKING FOR UPDATES- post below
