The Flying Horde

Since my last post about the Pseudophasma fulrum nymphs, many of the nymph have undergone ecydesis (moulting) and are now well into the second instar, with some now not being far off the third instar. I estimate that there are around 20 or so nymphs present now after quite a few more hatches since the last post.

Here are a few pictures of the nymphs, with a nymph in the second instar on the left and a nymph on the right in the first instar.

All of these nymphs are doing very well with no un-successful moults or issues. I suspect that I’ll have more hatching over the coming weeks, so most of these nymphs will probably be taken with me to the Phasmid Study Group meeting on the 9th of July to distribute to other members; I will write an extended blog post covering the meeting after the meeting.
