Hello all,

I'm trying to find academic literature in English on Orthochirus scrobiculosus, anything with reference to subspecies and/or natural history and distribution would be extremely helpful, but I can't find to much on this particular species. Really any information would be helpful.

Thanks,

Dean

Hi Dean,

I have yet come across a good and detailed write-up on them which mention about their natural history and such.
Anyone has a good link? Smile

Btw, Welcome to the forum mate.
Are you in the planning phase or have you already started breeding these little guys?

Hello,
Planning phase. I doubt if there is much in the way of care info for them, I'm looking more for like papers from scientific journals concerning them, but the original species description by Grube is in German and most papers I've found pertaining to the genus deal with other species and at best just briefly discuss the taxonomy of scrobiculosus. If I can find anything I'll post a little write up of it. Thanks for the welcome Smile.

Cheers,
Dean

Not sure if this is helpful or not.--I found these papers that are on or are at least partially about Orthochirus sp. (None specifically on O. scrobiculosus though.)

If you could save that as a file, you could send it to me on wobbly@outgun.com and i'd try and translate it for you...Wink
