A Few Corydiid Updates

My Arenivaga bolliana "McAllen, TX" have started maturing and are breeding quite well! The males of this locality seem to have pretty low mottling on their wings, which I think is pretty neat.

Here are some pictures of an adult pair:

I am now offering these up on my FS page, so if anyone's interested in the largest US native sand roach, feel free to reach out! 😉 

My Arenivaga sp. "Miller Canyon, AZ" have finally started maturing! These might be A.genitalis, though I'll need to do a better comparison later.

Here are some pictures of some adults:

Now that I've got pairs, fingers crossed I'll start seeing offspring popping up soon! 🤞

While looking at some Euthyrrhapha pacifica oothecae recently, I noticed one in which the nymphs had already hatched out of their eggs, but were still trapped inside of the ootheca. This species is unusual in that after hatching, nymphs must chew their way out of their oothecae, rather than immediately emerging from a seam at the top of the ootheca.

Not only did I get pics of this ooth, but also a video in which you can see some movement inside the ooth:

Such an interesting little species, that's doing phenomenally for me right now!

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