Ischnoptera bilunata


Recommended Posts

Always fun to see what new tiny species you're working on! These sure look fast, and have really impressive leg spines...

Do you know the purpose of the curved ooth?

Oh ya. Not only are these fast, but they also FLY so they can be pain in the butt to take pics sometimes. LOL

Unfortunately, I don't know what purpose the curve serves for, but I have a feeling that it's to make the oothe look more like a seed.

Beautiful species and glad to see they're doing well for you! Might have to get some of these in the future since I've really enjoyed my Ischnoptera sp. Costa Rica :)
