help with some darkling ID?


Recommended Posts

It's a mix of Eleodes species, the large ones with spines on all legs are E.armata, the rest, I have no clue.

Has anyone ever bred Eleodes armata? there does not seem to be a lot of information on this specie.

@Hisserdude has before. :) You can read about some general Eleodes care with a tad of specialized information for E.armata towards the end right here

I have, and I would check out the caresheet I wrote that @All About Arthropods linked to for info on them and breeding this genus in general. :)

thanks for the info! One question, do darklings lay eggs once a year in the spring?

Wild ones typically lay once a year around that time, yes, but freshly matured CB individuals start laying as soon as they're able to, regardless of the time of year they're reared up.
