Now in the US hobby! 😁 Unfortunately these individuals were not mine to keep, but I should be getting some next year when their new owners breed them! In any case, I was able to snag a few pictures of some nymphs while they were briefly in my possession, enjoy!

Closely related to Lanxoblatta, and similar to them in care.

That pattern is really cool. Do they retain it as adults?

No, they're winged and brown as adults.

Finally got the chance to work with this species myself, I just received 8 small nymphs! :) Hopefully they do well for me!

All but one of my nymphs have matured, and most are females! :D Fingers crossed for some offspring later next year!

Large nymphs:

Slightly teneral adults (the tips of their wings darkened up a little bit a few hours later but honestly they look much the same otherwise):
