Corydidarum sp. "Yunnun is one of the new species I'm importing, I will get you a starter culture of them once my colony establishes, you would be the 3rd person in the world to have them after me 

WOOHOO! Sounds great! :D I'm in the middle of a move now, hopefully I'll be all settled in by the time you have some available!! (Considering how slow Corydidarum breed, I probably will be! :P).

May I keep trying to guess what other species you are importing as well? :rolleyes:

Nope, not if there's free rare roaches involved! :lol: (unless there's a "one successful guess per person rule". :P)

I think one win per person is a good idea or your going to win every species lol. I do think the others will be hard to guess to be  honest.

I  second thought, I'll guess until I win as well! :P At least give me a hint though, was the Corydidarum the really stunning one you eluded to earlier?

Guess: Panesthia?

Yunnan is the really stunning species I am talking about,

i am getting 2 species of panesthia but they are already in the hobby (so no Freebys sadly)

i can give you a hint 2 of them are leaf mimics

Aww, shame, I could really us a male corydidarum magnifica ;)

Do you have magnifica? I'd be willing to buy them or trade some rhinos or other rare species once they get established in culture,

Yes I do have magnifica, but I only have one female and she's the only females I got, hope she's gravid or I find a male for her. If I ever do get a colony established, I'll gladly trade. 

Ooh, add me to your waiting list then! ;) If she's an adult female, that was with a male in her adult lifetime, she's gravid, it just may take 6+ months for her to gestate, as is the norm for this genus.

Ha, you better have something of equal value by the the time I get a colony established :P

six months ha. They must live for quite a while.
