Eumesosoma Babies!!! (& Panesthia Pics)

Well, I've officially bred Eumesosoma cf. roeweri! 😁 The babies have started hatching out from the first egg clutches, and the adults are STILL laying more eggs BTW. 😅 Will hopefully have dozens upon dozens of these black velvet harvestmen babies soon, that is if they aren't super cannibalistic... Which so far, with ample dog food, fruits and springtails available, they don't seem to be. They hatch out at a whopping 1mm in body length, so like, half the size of Vonones hatchlings. 😂

Here are some pictures of the wee babes:

Many of them are plumping up and will likely molt to second instar soon. Looking forward to watching them grow, and hope to spread them around in the hobby to interested parties soon! 😊

Just for the heck of it, I took some pictures of a couple of my larger Panesthia angustipennis angustipennis "Sabah, Malaysia - Gold Winged Form" nymphs the other day. The variation in nymph pattering is rather interesting IMO.

Here they are:

What lovely looking nymphs, I really can't wait to see adults in person! 😍

Also, small updates but notable nonetheless, as of a couple weeks ago, I have babies in my Cariblatta lutea and Neoblattella detersa colonies already. That was pretty fast. 😄

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