  1. Ha! Many of our beetle life cycles are not even known, even though larvae are open and diurnal. I find ex pupae beetles are rarely as spectacular as wild beetles which probably says little for my husbandry skills. They are essential however for determining life cycles. You are doing some great documentation, Arp. Posted one year ago
    1. Thanks Martin :o) I do try to make a point of documenting life cycles whenever offered a chance and I have a looooot still sitting on my hard drives, but I tend to take way too many bad/mediocre pictures in the process and it's a genuine PITA to sift through those series and find a few representative images ... :-| ... that said, there /will/ be more to come :o) Posted one year ago
