yes the H.falcata is quite easy, a really good species.
hopefully my females will start laying soon.

Oh they do look rather funky don't they. Pseudodatames sp, never heard of those before.

yes they probably are also as difficult as hell to get ahold of too:(
ah well maybe this sp will be more available in the future

My friend in Belgium has some of these, but they are very hard to rear. Surplus of this species will take some time...

Let us know if he has any available sometime :D
Is it just me or does the rest of europe have better inverts?

Low hatch rates, high 1st instar mortality rate... And it's a couple. the continent seems to get species before vthe UK, it just takes some time for them to drift over here...
