Coniontis sp. "CA" & Corydidarum Updates!

My Coniontis sp. "CA" are doing pretty well, and my first CB adult is hardened up and ready to join the main colony! 🙂 It has a much thicker layer of wax than the other adults do, which will probably wear off a bit after a few weeks.

Here are some pictures of it:

And what's more, a second pupa has enclosed, and I found another pupa and a pre-pupa as well!
Here are a couple pictures of the more teneral adult:

Finally getting a good amount of larvae pupating now, hopefully this trend will continue! 😊

My Corydidarum pygmaea culture is sitting in a pretty good spot, there were at least two litters born last month, maybe three. The combination of heat, high ventilation, rotten logs for boring, and slightly dry upper layers of substrate but high air humidity really seems to be boosting their reproduction! 😄

Speaking of which, here are some photos I took of a mating pair, something you rarely see with this species!

Always a good sign more nymphs are on the way! 😁

Anyways, that does it for this post, hope everyone enjoyed, will see you all next time! 😉
