  1. Pycnoscelus surinamensis nymph with hypo-pigmentation.
  2. That's what Kyle told me and it takes couple of generations to get rid of this diapause requirement.
  3. P. americana and P. pennsylvanica. P. pennsylvanica can be easy to rear but specimens from northern region often needs to be exposed in cold to make them turn into adults so that is somewhat tricky.
  4. Some can be quite tricky but most of them aren't too difficult to rear
  5. Instead of culling them, how about keeping them separate from black ones? I've separated all my light brown ones into separate containers to develop light brown strain and it seems to be working. lol I think you might have put too much vaseline on the side of the container. I've had nymphs climb over vaseline when I put too much vaseline on the side so I had to do some trials to figure out how to stop the nymphs from climbing. lol
  6. Looks like Kyle is doing great job at distributing them I would take those light brown ones out of the culture (unless they are all teneral specimens) cause they will taint your culture slowly.
  7. Looks like a tortoise beetle in genus Coptocycla.
  8. I'm currently keeping them in the same way as Blattella germanica. As you can see, they are kept in an airtight container with cardboards inside to give shelter. I also place a cotton soaked in water to maintain humidity in there.
  9. It's a quite common species in southeastern US but not many people seem to breed this species.
  10. My Parcos are slow too! Only P. divisa, P. fulvescens, and P. lata I have are throwing off adults now
  11. Just roooooaching. lol

  12. fulvescens is slightly smaller than uhleriana.
  13. Oh...I thought you were talking about the males. Females don't seem to show too much differences saved for the fact that the possible caudelli ones tend to be much smaller than fulvescens and usually lack red markings on their abdomens.
  14. That's the usual case though it won't apply to the ones with deformed wings or some wing related abnormality.
  15. Lucky! Wish I could see this beautiful species in person! Any chance you'll be able to bring this to the US and establish a culture?
  16. P. fulvescens are suppose to have only two dots. I am speculating that yours is P. caudelli but I would leave it as unidentified species for now.
  17. Hmmm...the more and more I look at it, the more it resembles P. fulvescens.
  18. My adults are finally dropping some oothecae Will take some pics when I get my light source back.
