Beautiful T, Andy! Congrats on the future little ones. Looks like she was a very good mommy and kept them nicely separated. I look forward to updates as these little bugs grow. :D Di

thanks colin and diane, yes i am going to need a fair few film pots if they all make it!! there seems to be quite a few, there was also a lot of dead eggs to, she certainly was a good mum diane , i did actually have second thoughts about pulling the sac ,maybe next time ( i have a sub adult male) i will wait another couple of weeks before removing a sac from her :D

Very cool. Good job. they look like very healthy little bugs. :p I have my first sac of Tapinauchenius violaceus 1st instars myself. I just found them Sunday, crawling all over mom. Isn't this hobby great? Di

They are a very rare species as only a few collected for this first time this year. We got 10 big ones and 5 smalls so be good to have them established in captivity.

bit late with the congrats here, but nice one, Andy! the slings you gave me are still thriving, and i'm currently attempting to get my female to take notice of my male! and then he's off to you, hopefully!
brilliant species!!!
