Capucina patula (Velvety Bark Roach)


Recommended Posts

A beautiful species of Zetoborinae, very flat. Both nymphs and adults seem to exude a waxy secretion, which probably prevents dessication. They do seem to prefer drier conditions than some of the hobby lobby Zetoborinae as well, so this makes sense.

Stunning Roaches! definitely a must have in any collection. How do you find their husbandry to be like? 

Thank you for sharing!

Thanks! 😁 So far they seem pretty easy, but having the proper, super flat and smooth bark is very important. They like it humid, but not very humid it seems.
