Hisserdude Posted September 8, 2021 Share Posted September 8, 2021 @Cariblatta lutea sent me some oothecae of these last year, which I hatched out and reared to adulthood, and they are now breeding and producing oothecae of their own!

Here are some pictures of the oothecae and young nymphs from last year: And here are some pictures of my adults: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
