Panesthiinae Updates & Eucorydia Pictures

Got a few more random updates and pictures of roaches today. 😄

My Panesthia angustipennis cognata "Cambodia" are doing swimmingly, so many babies now, I really don't understand how these didn't get established in the US hobby way sooner TBH, but hey, I'm glad they're here now! 😁

Here are some pictures of an adult and nymph pair, plus a couple group shots:

Such a pretty species, hopefully they'll catch on in popularity here in the US hobby!

My Panesthia angustipennis angustipennis "Sabah, Malaysia - Gold Winged Form" are also doing quite well, and are slowly but steadily approaching adulthood, think some of my nymphs are subadults now actually. 😁 Can't wait to see adults in person, and see just how big they get compared to cognata!

Anyways, I just so happened to get a couple somewhat decent pictures of a freshly molted nymph in a molting chamber the other day, something I've never seen before:

Pretty neat to see one of these teneral!

I recently rehoused my Salganea raggei, and confirmed that I have a total of 7 individuals still alive, all adults. None of them look particularly fat or gravid, so I'm hoping I didn't get unlucky with my sex ratio. 😅 I'm actually fairly confident I've been keeping them much too cool, I didn't realize the spot of my room that I keep them in is consistently in the low 60s, so I've moved them to a larger enclosure in a warmer spot to try and coax some breeding out of them. 

In better news, regarding my Ancaudellia s. serratissima, I believe I only started with 10 or so individuals in the Summer. All of the nymphs sent in that group have matured now, and a couple different broods seem to have been born since then, as I'm now up to 31 individuals total. 😊 So those are doing quite well, should be able to spread them around in the US hobby for the first time ever next year!

Lastly, my next generation of Eucorydia yasumatsui have reached the subadult stage, and one of the males matured recently. Thought I'd try and get some decent pictures of a young adult male that doesn't have any significant wing defects, as opposed to my original set of images of an adult male last year. 😅

Without further adieu:

Such a pretty species, and honestly, seems like they're kinda underrated in the US hobby. Definitely don't seem to get as much love as they should considering their relative ease of care, and their stunning coloration. 😍

Well, that does it for this post, thanks for reading, hope everyone enjoyed, stay safe, and I'll see you all next time! 😉
