  1. Thank you so much, you really helped! And I just have to wait until at least one pair is formed
  2. I have two subspecies Panesthia angustipennis - P. a. cognata and P. a. angustipennis. As you know, they grow and develop for a long time, but yesterday the first imago appeared (I think that the male, but did not specifically determine the sex). There he is : What Panesthiinae do you have?
  3. I finally have six older nymphs Simandoa conserfariam, which I have long dreamed of (since they are Oxyhaloinae). I have no information on the cultivation and breeding of this species. The first imago appeared yesterday (presumably a male). Since I only have six individuals, I am very worried about preserving them and getting culture. Do you think there is a chance to get culture out of so many? And I would also like to hear recommendations from those who already have positive experience in breeding this species Here is my first imago:
  4. Your explanation - really clarified the situation, this is the most adequate information about the state of this species that I have ever seen. Thank you very much!
  5. Got new species of Peresphaerinae. These are Corydidarum magnifica, C. tarsalis, C. pygmaeus, C. sp. Japan and Bantua sp. Namibia. In some cultures there are already adults and as a result, there is every reason to expect offspring Corydidarum magnifica C. tarsalis C. pygmaeus Bantua sp. Namibia Photo by C. sp. Japan I did not publish, since they are outwardly similar to C. pygmaea.
  6. Pseudoergats Reticulitermes lucifugus. The photo, unfortunately, is of low quality, since there is no technical possibility…
  7. At the end of the week, a family of Reticulitermes lucifugus termites will visit me. I really love termites and have always wanted to have them in my collection. Previously, this was not possible, but now you can collect at least about a dozen species. I had experience (unsuccessful) with termites of this species, but there were few individuals (pseudoergats, larvae and soldiers) and they did not survive. Now, I was given a whole family with sexes and a large number of pseudo-ergats and soldiers. I really hope that everything will work out with them. Have you had any experience keeping termite
  8. Which is correct: Bláberus or Blabérus? What do you think?
  9. Please tell me how you keep Corydidarum magnifica. Interested in moisture, substrate, diet, water, etc.
  10. Yes, of course I read this work, but at that moment the cave was in place. After this publication, I have not come across any work on this taxon and others that speak of the destruction of this site. It is known that mining operations are being carried out in that region, but direct indications that the cave no longer exist has not been found.
  11. Что ж, в конце концов, есть вероятность, что они живут в других пещерах того же региона. И МСОП не опубликовал его на своем веб-сайте. Как-то странно. Обычно они всегда публикуются после исследования. And are there any reports in the literature that this particular cave was destroyed?
  12. Why is it generally said everywhere that this species is extinct in the wild? I have not seen a single official document confirming this information. It is not in the IUCN directory either.
  13. I have a question for the forum participants. In what conditions do you keep Henschoutedenia flexivitta? Mainly interested in moisture, substrate.
  14. 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:
  15. Earlier this week, I was presented with 7 middle aged nymphs Therea nuptialis (Gerstaecker, 1861). This species is very rare in culture, and for me, collecting Corydiinae, this is a very desirable acquisition. I hope that after the nymphs enter the imago, I will be able to get a sufficient number of ootheca and consolidate the species in my culture.
  16. Yes, I know that they work abroad, but in Russia and the CIS they do not work with this
  17. Here, in Russia and the CIS in general, many do not even suspect that there are different types. Most believe that there is simply "Madagascar hissing cockroach." Others, however, think that any black cockroach is Princisia. 😄 This is all because no one has seriously studied and is not engaged in this group. I am, perhaps, the only person who is trying to do this. Now I am preparing for publication my book about Gromphadorhini and preparing an Internet site completely dedicated to Oxyhaloinae.
