There are currently two species of Dimorphodes in culture. This one, which not yet have received a PSG number, and Dimorphodes catenulatus with PSG number 236. Though little have being documented about Dimorphodes spec., they are extremely similar to Dimorphodes catenulatus so same care sheets may be used. They prefer to be kept very humid, but watch out for mould. Over all, they are a farley easy specie to keep and not particularly fussy about food and do quite well in small terrarium. The death rate is really low. Dimorphodes spec. likes to hide behind tree bark or on the floor of the terrarium, during day time. In general, there will always be more males then females hatching of this specie. It is not yet known if partenogenetic reproduction is possible in this specie. Ova takes 3- 6 month to hatch.

Females: ones adults, they take quite a long time to start producing ova. They tend to deposit ova in more humid places, but care should be taken as mould can occur on ovae. Just simply ventilate the cage well to reduce mould. Getting 6- 7 cm long.

Males: as adult, make funny sounds when disturbed by using their small wings! Getting 4- 5 cm long.

Diet: Hazel, Rose, Hypericum, Beech.
