Wow, these aren't even on his website - I wonder if they will be soon. These guys look pretty neat when they're adults...almost like a Lucihormetica, but not quite. Eurycotis are some of my favorites

I assume they will be soon, once he starts updating his site again. They are stunning as adults, I really can't wait to see them in person! I can see the similarities to Lucihormetica, the markings on the wings and abdomen aren't too different. :)

The adults are insane, I got to see them in person at the Tinley Park NARBC show while I helped Kyle vend. I ended up getting three ooths and almost an adult pair, but Kyle wanted to keep them to continue bolstering his colony since they didn't sell. I have a ton of little nymphs running around now that I probably need to upgrade this weekend.

Glad to hear that, really excited for my nymphs to mature! :D Cool, hope your nymphs do well for you, keep us updated! :)

Hey @Cariblatta lutea, how big do these get as adults again?

Beautiful! :D I'm currently contemplating picking some of these guys up, but I also really like P.horrida......decisions, decisions.

Honestly, I'd go with P.horrida, these are pretty and all, but are a huge PIA to care for, as they are very fast and always try to bolt out of the enclosure. -_-

Oh, that's not a major problem for me, I've dealt with it before. lol I'll see if I can get both since it's so hard to choose, but if it comes down to it, I'll go with horrida. Alan's pics have really just motivated me to acquire them along with the fact that I've been keeping an adult masked hunter and have grown quite fond of assassins. :)

I'd need at least a pair or two so I could breed them

I have one currently, is there a way to sex them?

Females have pointy tip on the last segment (which often extends past the wings) while the males have round tip.

Only about 1.1" in length. This is probably the smallest species of Eurycotis available in the hobby! (unless sp. "Venezuela is smaller)

Alright, good to know! Hey, that just means I can fit more of them in a container! :P Are the adults as crazy and skittish as the nymphs?

Definitely! Whenever I lift up an egg flat to check on them they go nuts! One of them even jumped out of the container while I was trying to put back the egg flat to its original place!

Dang it, I really want to try and handle the adults at least a little bit, they look so pretty! :unsure: Guess I'll just have to do it over a large empty bin or something lol!
