This is from the pairing of my female with James Box's male, who was sadly eaten.

I decided to pull the sac today as it was 4 weeks since it was laid. The sac was extremely well wrapped but felt hard and solid which was discouraging. But when I opened it there were lots of healthy-looking eggs (only 2 bad ones) and a couple of EWLs. I guess it would have benefited from being left an extra couple of weeks. Maybe the temperature was a bit on the low side which has slowed development time, but hopefully incubation will do the job.
