Well I have a pretty awesome update to share on my Archimandrita tesselata........another sub-adult nymph molted to adulthood, and it's a male! Really happy that I already have an adult pair and in turn will likely be getting some babies a lot sooner than I expected!
He seems to have molted an dried perfectly except for a little part on his wing that has a small amount of liquid coming from it, surely from a vein that was damaged during molting. I'm not thinking it is anything to be concerned about though, since he seems to be acting fine, and the amount of liquid is minimal.
Here are some pics of him, the liquid, and the pair together.

Now on to the second thing that I was going to share with you guys today. :)
I was looking through the substrate of my E.sinensis"White Eye" yesterday and found an adult female ,which was carrying the first ootheca that I've gotten from this species!
Here's some pics!

Hope you guys all were fascinated by this post and took pleasure in reading it, as I always hope!
So to everybody, goodbye!
