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
