Mecynorhina ugandensis breeding 3

This year, the breeding of Mecynorhina ugandensis has had a very good start!

Last year, the biggest M. ugandensis was a red type male of a nice 72 mm.

This year, the breeding results are more promissing! Currently, we have a dozen of pupae (different breeding lines: blue and blue X wild green/red type) of which some reached remarkable weights as L3 larvae.

The biggest pupal chambers have a length of around 75-85 mm (completely scraped off to their inner structure):

Maybe we can reach 75+ mm lengths!
