Post by joachim »

Hello all,

what Stichophthalma is it? There is no data, it is in a frame.
Thanks for ideas, Joachim

This is Stichopthalma camadeva.

Albeit, it's colors are a bit faded from being exposed to light.

Thanks, then I will think about uying it. camadeva seems to be difficult to obtain.

Oh' it's still a worthy specimen to keep because (you're right); the species is no longer available unless you get it from an old collection or from old papered stock that was never prepared.

Trehopr is quite right. That is Stichophthalma camedeva. From being very easy to get hold of in the 1970s & 1980s like all Indian material it is now virtually impossible to obtain.
I posted a picture of two of my pairs on the "show your favourite specimen" thread of the forum a while back. Here they are again:
