Parapodacanthus hasenpuschorum Brock, 2003
(by Bruno Kneubühler)


  • from Cairns, Australia
  • eggs look like a little Kiwi fruit, about 3 x 2 mm, reddish brown, very hairy - with a distinctive capitulum
  • incubation time (HH-method on slightly damp sand) is about 4 - 5 months at 20 - 23 °C
  • nymphs are orange, hairy, about 12mm long with green-orange striped legs
  • no food plant could be found here in Switzerland, despite I have tried many plants in summer
  • their natural food plant is Euodia elleryana, on which they grow well
