Bug (Dimorphodes spec.) (PSG- Not Yet Given)
||It appears unknown of who first discovered
this specie, but it was not earlier then in
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
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.
