Anyone seen these before? They started popping up in the sphagnum that my Ecuagenera plants are packaged in... about the size of black springs. Pictures will come later.

No bugs here, but I did have to change source for spaghnum as I kept having a cottony appearing fungus growing in it and it gave off a strong odor and was killing frogs.

I'll take some of those! Bet I can come up with a nice bug trade that will put you ahead on the swap.

Pictures will be up tomorrow. I try to get in an order of plants from Ecuagenera at least once a year, at a show or shipped (they import their plants themselves from Ecuador). Culturing should take a while as I have only located about 5 of them... I should be able to send out starter colonies in a month if things go well.

Sorry for the delay, finals consumed my life last week.



Adults are much more blue and a little larger than that one next to my thumb.

Pics way to small to get a good idea, any chance you can post another one zoomed in or a bigger one? can't tell the difference between that, tomocerus, mini temperate silvers, etc in that one

I don't have a quality camera on me so this is all I can do. It's probably appearing white from the reflection of the camera flash on it. It's actually a navy shade of metallic blue. In comparison to Tomocerus, I'd say it's just a hair bigger fully grown.
