Ischnoptera deropeltiformis "Ruby Red"

Recommended Posts

Beautiful strain of this species that has dark red wings as adults, got a group of nymphs from @Cariblatta lutea yesterday! :) Here are pics of some of the nymphs:

Ah yes, them's some sexy legs! Yessir! They kind of remind me of a blacker, "sexier" Eurycotis. Enlarging your colony, or your first time keeping?

Congrats!:D

One of my nymphs finally matured into this beautiful female, now you can see why this strain is called "Ruby Red"! :D

I really love the blood red wings on the females! The colors look a little more vibrant in person, the camera kinda muted the colors a bit.
