lecole4 Posted March 8, 2015 Share Posted March 8, 2015 Hello! I'd like to say first that I am brand new to the forum, though I have been a long-time lurker because the information here is great. Anyway, the backstory to this is that I have owned a healthy feeder colony of B. dubia for three years now. I sourced them from a few places and at this point I've totally forgotten which. :/ Yesterday, when I was taking out a large number of nymphs to ship off to a friend, I noticed a roach that was nearly solid orange, and after a few minutes of looking, I found a couple more. The larger (female?) I found first https://www.dropbox.com/s/ff8sy5vartnrf4i/photo%20mar%2007%2C%2010%2003%2044%20am.jpg?dl=0 Two smaller (males?) I found shortly after with one of my "regular" nymphs for comparison https://www.dropbox.com/s/f26w4z7epetid7z/photo%20mar%2007%2C%2010%2002%2059%20am.jpg?dl=0 What do you all think of this? Is it a polymorphism,something environmental? Has this been seen before? Thanks so much for your insight. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
