  1. The legs match the style well... I look forward to seeing the final product!
  2. Looking for some information on how to sex medium/large nymphs. Anyone have some tips?
  3. Haha, sorry about the location bit. I live in New York.
  4. Sorry for the quality, still getting used to my camera. As far as the location goes I'll take a picture of that when I get a chance. It's an old abandoned quarry. They were found on sand/clay substrate next to a fairly wet area.
  5. Just caught a bunch of an unknown species. I have a few questions for ya. How often do you feed them, and what kind of substrate do you keep them on? Humidity levels?
  6. Does anyone have any Diploptera punctata anymore? See you mentioned that they are in the hobby, but haven't seen them offered in a while.
  7. I wish there were more species to find in my area, but central NY is seriously lacking in roaches haha.
  8. Haha, definitely a pretty good start here. Cariblatta, that's quite a few species. Might say I'm a bit envious of that collection. I'm thinking my next species will be Lucihormetica... they look pretty awesome.
  9. Just wondering whether or not there's a comprehensive list out there for roach species in the hobby? I know that a similar list has been compiled, with breeding records, for mantids. It would certainly be interesting to see how many and what species are out there.
  10. Apparently Archimandrita tesselata are very widespread down there. The first three were found in a very dry forest, where the college property is located, and a fourth was in an area not too far from a cloud forest (very damp). Both had a ton of different roach species, but again I was a bum with my camera. The most sightings happened on a night I left my camera on the bus and the driver had gone to bed already. Super bummed about that.
  11. So I thought I had at least a few more, but it looks like only two nymphs. I have a ton of pictures of other inverts though. I may be applying for an undergrad research grant and returning during the wet season. If that's the case I'll be 100% sure to take a ton more roach photos.
  12. I was pretty excited to see them in the wild! Unfortunately most of the other shots I have are of nymphs. I really dropped the ball in one area we were staying. At least three sizable species all over, but no camera. There were also a ton of very small adults in the leaf litter. They were smaller than 1st instar dubia nymphs. I'll see what I have an upload them.... prepare for disappointment.
  13. That's my best guess. Looks pretty similar to the few I have. We collected some samples that are in the process of being exported, so we'll know within the next few.... months?
  14. This past week I traveled to Costa Rica for a bioblitz on some property my college owns.This was one of about four adults seen. Pretty sure I saw some nymphs running around though. We did some traveling and there were a ton more roaches, but I didn't have my camera for a lot of it. I'll post a few of those I did manage to get photos of soon!
