New Arrivals

I have recently received three new sets of ova that I am currently trying to hatch. they are as follows:

Orthomeria kangi

This is a very interesting species from the Benquet area of the Phillipines. The adults are winged, and are a mixture of mainly black and red; the wings are clear and the feamles measure 50mm and the males 40mm, making this a very small species.

Periphetes graniferum

Another Phillipine species that is found on a couple of different Phillipine islands. This is a species with very colourful 7-7.5cm males that are a mixture of green, blue, orange and black. The 8-8.5cm females are a mixture of green, blue and yellow/orange.

Necrosciinae sp “Tam Dao”

I currently have a subadult female specimen of this species, however the other nymphs I had of this species died due to an outbreak of fungus, so i decided to order more of this species so that I can achieve a successful culture. Both the male and the female are a beautiful bright dark green, with the females possessing a rather ‘flattened’ look; this species possesses clear wings. The males measure about 7.5-8cm and the females measure about 8.5-9cm.
