Wow! That adult male is MUCH darker than mine, mine is dark orange and yours is nearly black! Interesting! Wish you luck on breeding them! :)

Thanks :) I have a jet black specimen from different locality that I need to get pics of. It's almost the color of Ischnoptera deropeltiformis!

On a side note, here are some pics of specimens I had last year from same locality

Nice! So what again is the problem with this species? Is it that they won't lay eggs, or that the resulting nymphs don't make it to adulthood?

The locality pictured in this thread seem to have high random death rate among nymphs, and my friend who managed to get them to reproduce didn't have success raising the F1s
