  1. A few days ago, several adults and about two dozen Elliptorhina coquereliana (Saussure, 1863) nymphs from Moscow will come to me. They were caught in the north of Madagascar - the natural range of this species. Earlier, I carried out identification using material from this culture (external morphology and preparation of the genitals). Based on this data, I can confidently say that the culture is Elliptorhina coquereliana. Photo of a adult male:

  2. I've heard these are being cultured in Europe, such a nice species! 😍 Another hisser that will hopefully make it to the US hobby in time, hopefully they aren't too difficult to culture! Best of luck breeding them! 😁

  3. Good luck Sir. Island species are so very capable of extinction in the wild.

  6. They're doing great, actually just had some mature! My current setup is a moderately ventilated two gallon bin filled nearly to the brim with moist, compressed coconut fiber, with some bark slabs buried. My old setup in 2017 was similar, but again I received that pair as adults, and they never bred. This time I started with nymphs, reared them up, and hopefully will have better luck now.

  7. How are they doing now? I didn't realize Lucihormetica didn't handle shipping well as adults, what was the setup like? Curiosity and desire to compare notes. I had recently lucked out and got a whole colony of subcinta that another didn't want, there were a few aborted ooths within a week but as of this month I have a few batches of nymphs from them. I'm very new to this species, having the colony for about 2 months now and only just learned about grossei like... 5 minutes ago...

  8. They kept slowly dying under my care, so before they all died out, I sent them off to a friend. Haven't talked to him in a while so I'm not sure how they are doing. I did get your big isopod book for Christmas, so I'm better armed for next time.
