  • P. perpulchra “Beautiul” Peruvian Leaf mantis

    Pseudoxyops perpulchra  Name: Pseudoxyops perpulchra  Country occurrence of Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil 

    Perpulchra Means “Beautiful” and these are elegant” males smaller by comparison like orchids. I find these to be easy for beginners nd though rare we have them I breeding now

    Feeding  In stage L1 to L3 - melanogaster flies, then d. Hydei to L5. Adults easily prey on adult cricket and blue bottle flies

    Culture conditions:  Temperature in the range of 23 - 28 C  Humidity approx. 70% while maintaining very good air ventilation.

    An adult size: approx. 8 cm female and 5 male cm 

    Communal possible, while maintaining a very large area and continuous access to food, wherein the males are  separated from females 

    Difficulty: nymphs are sensitive L1, though I’d recommend as easy and good for beginners. They re extremely friendly and curious and  relaxed liking to be held
