Family: Heteronemiidae
Sub-Family: Necrosciinae
Genus: Lopaphus
Species: caesius

Distribution: ?

Both sexes are winged, though neither can fly. This is a fairly fragile specie, so extream cotion have to be taken when they are kept too moist or too dry!

Females: do not have the striking colors that of the males.

Males: are some of the most beautyfull I have ever seeing with their silver-blue thorax :)! The first thoutch of silver-blue color can be observed at L3. They get 8- 9" long. Their antennae are quite long, measuring at 9cm long. This appears to be the only "blue" Phasmid specie in culture (correct me if i'm wrong).

Diet: Bramble, Oak, Photinia.


L1 nymph.
