Megacrania batesii "Cape Tribulation"
by Bruno Kneubuehler (Switzerland)

  • Pandanus (different species) is very well accepted
  • be careful, Pandanus from commercial shops (like Thai shops) might well be poisoned !
  • palm leaves (coconut palm) might also be accepted, but I have not tried it
  • as easy to breed as Megacrania phelaus "Kwara'ae"
  • incubation (Cup-Incubation-method, on medium damp vermiculite) about 4 - 6 months at 20 - 24 °C
  • keep nymphs and adults fairly humid
  • it is good to spray them (with chlorine free !) water regularely
  • adult females are about 10 - 11 cm long
