According to the website it came from: http://www.cic-net.co.jp/blog/cat6/aeluropoda_insignis/

It's a freshly molted Aeluropoda insignis. His seem to be a really nice size compared to mine!

And WOW does he have some neat species! Love google translate. ;)

I googled the species because I never heard of it before, what a beauty can't believe some are near red!

They really are gorgeous, and the thing I love most about them is that their antenna are nearly as long as they are! It takes a lot of light for all their color to show, so a flash on a camera brings it out very strongly, otherwise they're a rich red-brown. I haven't caught any of mine molting so I haven't seen if they normally turn that shade of yellow afterwards.

They're easy to breed, too. I started out with I think four (two males and two females) a year ago. Last night my husband walked into the invert room and all the very large nymphs were lined up on one side of the see-through plastic bin like they do every night, and he told me it was time to "find new homes for some of them." :lol: Guess there were a little too many for comfort!

Haha too funny! I guess cockroaches are overwhelming to most people of either gender.

Beautiful species though. At least to all of us.
