PostSubject: H. spinigerus pics/sexing   6/14/2012, 6:05 pm

Hi all, just got some pics here from sexing some new arrivals last night.

On Friday I recieved 4 Hoffmannius spinigerus. The pectine tooth count (PTC) for this species is 16-22females / 22-27males. Click below for the pics;

spinigerus 1 PTC-21/20:
 

spinigerus 2 PTC-21/20:
 

spinigerus 3 PTC-20:
 

spinigerus 4 PTC-20:
 

The wanted outcome was 3 females and a male. If I'm not mistaken I have all females, damn! Granted, it's alot better than all males but one would have been handy. Although my eyes have gone pretty blurry from starring at the screen trying to count these tiny things, so check my counts please! Very Happy

I also have this little H. spinigerus, this is the best I could do of it's pectines though, it's still pretty tiny.

4i to 5i:
 

I struggled to get a count from that but zoomed in it seems around 20-21, so looks like another female to me, I may be wrong but the hunt for the elusive male H. spinigerus continues! Very Happy

Yeah one male would be good but hey, once they are all ready, a single male can impregnates the four. Awesome brood odds there! Smile

Btw, great Macro shots there, 60mm ?

Cheers!

Yeah mate, 60mm at 1:1. That was as close as I could get to the little one, them air holes are pin holes! It was awkward as well because it was an over the head job, they didn't seem to like the cloth on top and turn them over method or I wasn't doing it right.

To be honest I wish I had brought the 100mm macro lens to give more distance between the subject for the same magnification, you have to get up soo close with a 60mm for 1:1. Although the 60mm does double up as a nice fast portrait/general use lens so is good for my tattooing and fishing as well as the scorps which was my original thinking.

If anyone knows where the mythical creature that is a male H. spinigerus resides in the uk please let me know! Very Happy
