Panchlora sp. "Guadeloupe" Adult Males!!!

Well, it's happened, two of my male Panchlora sp. "Guadeloupe" have matured! 😁
What's interesting is that the coloration on these is different than it is on the females, so they are sexually dimorphic! While females are a solid pale green, the males are more yellowish (similar in color to Panchlora sp. "Speckled" IMO), and have two reddish brown lines going down the top quarter of their wings. I don't think there are any pictures of the males of this species in existence yet (or if there are, I certainly haven't seen them), so I am more than happy to change that now! 😜

Here is one of the males:

A couple of my female nymphs look to be subadults getting ready to molt soon, so fingers crossed I'll get to breed these beauties soon! 😃 Will be nice to get yet another Panchlora species established in the US hobby!

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