Xenoblatta

The real Capucina sp. (Zetoborinae)

Recommended Posts

Hello friends!! 

There are pictures in internet of the genus Capucina that looks a little doubtful... the main difference between Capucina and the rest of Zetoborinae genus is the soft pubescence over their tegmina. 

Some time ago I've collected some mystery Zetoborinae nymphs that I though was some kind of Lanxoblatta; but surprise!! now I have my first Capucina group ? I'm not sure if C.patula (only species in the genus), but as soon as one adult die I'll check it out.

NOTE: Take a look over the right corner of the pronotum in this adult... when they get wet, their pubescence absorbs the moisture and change the colour (...gets darker, like a cloth ? )

Enjoy it! ?
