Mega Glowspot Adults!!!

The first of my Lucihormetica grossei are now mature! 😁 I've got two adult males and one adult female so far, the female is a nice normal size, (or at least around the size of the female I had years ago), but the males seem a little runty, I'm afraid the two gallon container I have them in wasn't big enough for them to reach their full size, so that's a little disappointing... These larger Lucihormetica/Hormetica stunt SO easily. One of the males also came out with messed up wings, I think a result of molting against the buried bark in the enclosure, with the wings being shaped against the bark or something... So I've removed some of said bark from their enclosure to ensure that doesn't happen again.

In any case, the other pair that matured with perfect wings are so beautiful, and it's nice to see adults of this species in person again! 😄
Here are some pictures:

Such a stunning Lucihormetica species, really looking forward to breeding these beauties, wish me luck! 🤞😃

Anyways, that's gonna do it for this update, thanks for reading, I hope everyone enjoyed, stay safe, and I'll see you all in the next post! 😉
