The first one is a darker variation of a Peppered Roach, and the second is an interesting light-colored Flat-horned Hisser that is HUGE!

It's really beautiful, red is kind of unique. Besides that its size and shape look like a hisser or Dubia.

That is an adult, and this is very odd color as the lines on abdomen usually go across but yours is plain black in the middle of abdomen. I've raised this species and never had any like this. You should find a nice looking male to mate her with.

Well Kaith, I'm pretty sure it's a subadult when I compare her with my other females. I've seen this coloration a few times last year, but it always turned normal when they reach adulthood :/

Hmm, when mine got the orange/maroon dots on the side they were adults, nymphs had white dots or half orange/half white so I knew they had growing by color of those.

Either way it's still pretty and if not mature mabye keep it seperate so when it does mature you'll know who it is.

Pycnoscelus surinamensis nymph with hypo-pigmentation.

Mine often have a similar coloration shortly after they molt. I can't tell if this one is recently molted or actually this color. Awesome find either way. Looks a bit like Pycnoscelus striatus.

It's been in that color for almost a week since I found him/her so I think it is safe to say that this one is hypo-pigmented :)

His/her siblings are black by the way.

I bred some to have this color usually all colonies get a few but selective breeding increases it http://www.roachforum.com/index.php?showtopic=4329&hl=

I think I have good chance of getting hypopigmented specimens in the second generation since Pycnoscelus surinamensis are pathogenetic species (that is, if that trait was a heritable trait) :)

That's something I'd really like to see. Surinam's are probably my favorite species.

Hi!

so, fistly, some news of my female cf. Gromphadorhina portentosa "tricolor". I've isolated her with a nice male, looking a bit like her... I'll wait one year, if there is no reproduction because of this isolaion, then, I'll put them back in the colony.

I've spotted an other nice individual in this colony, a big male (largest thorax and abdomen of the colony!) with small horns and no stripes! Here, a picture side to side with another big male:

Now, not as impressive as johns' one, but a really nice Aeluropoda insignis male that happened in my colony. He's way more red than all the other roaches in the colony, and bigger than any other males I've ever had!

bye!
