Lychas mucronatus...looks like male to me, but let's wait for GS to pop in, as the pic is a bit blurry.
+1 to correct ID and Sexing Very Happy

a lean, male (6i-7i) Lychas mucronatus
Maybe on rare cases but both sex usually mature at 6.instar and immediately start to breed like bunnies Smile

I have yet tested out to get 7.instar female but it would be interesting to try.

Are you able to post a comparison pic of a 6.instar male side by side with a 7.instar female?
Or a 7.instar female on a ruler?

once I got a nice camera (saving for my thesis this June) i'll try to post, it took an average of 2.5 months for my 6i female to reach 7i, I feed regularly and they bulk up a bit. I used your breeding "tutorial" and it shows sexual dimorphism at 6i but didn't breed them at once and tried if they can make it to 7i (the females at least) like Centruroides and Isometrus. I lost one in the process...

IME, female Lychas mucronatus are more aggressive when feeding, all my 6i males tend to eat atleast twice a month. Females are almost always on the prowl.

Do you mean you have kept a sling from 2.instar, keeping record all the way till it reaches 7.instar (female) and have that same 7.instar female mated and popped for you? I'm curious..

1. How was the brood size?

2. Is there's any significant brood size difference between a 6 and 7.instar female?

3. How big in cm is the 7.instar female? body length itself without including the tail

I got 8 2i Lychas mucronatus last year, 1 had a bad molt (from 5i to 6i) and a female 6i died of unknown reasons. I've kept them individually from day one. I am pretty sure the females are in 7i not only on records but also sexual dimorphism is evident at 6i, and they molted after that.

At this point I have 4.2.0

I did not mate them because I had a rather unproductive experience with mating 6i Centruroides. Plus, a fellow Filipino who had slings of L. mucro for sale sometime ago told me that her breeder is at 7i. After some time, the females molted into 7i and kept them well fed for about a month. At the end of January I put the two ripe females together with the biggest male out of the 4 I have.

As of today, one of the females is gaining weight and hoping that at the end of March I'll have some slings. I've witnessed mating with both 7i females. So question number 1 will be answered after this.

2. With regards to significance between a 6i and a 7i I would never know for sure for I have 2 7i females.

3. Will try to measure them later.

BTW, your caresheet is my bible in keeping them. Very Happy. Hoping I could get my hands on your sweet L. scutilus Smile

That is great info!

May i encourage you to put this up at our breeding report section when you are ready with the stats. I'm sure many will find it useful.

Apologies, currently my slings are not open for sale to public at the moment.
Thanks for your interest Smile

ok, I might include Isometrus maculatus and Lychas infuscatus, but it will take some time because of work and grad school.

this hobby really took a lot of stress load.

GS, don't you think it's better to move this conversation in a separate thread?

I think the OP got the answer to his original question.
