    Yes thanks, just googled they are Rhyssonotus nebulosus (well i think) found them mating and i assume laying eggs, hadnt seen them before, so found them quite interesting.

    the fact where they come from has very few people and all the land is illegal too collect from.. and all the people out there kill all these things when they find them.. the only reason i have them is cause i asked my mates to keep them for me instead of killing them. I can bet i know who it is anyway.... if so its nothing new for them to support illegal harvesting.

    anyway this is getting a bit sad, so ill leave you lot too it.. but i know the laws and i know what i had comes from a specific location which is illegal to collect from so i have no doubt at all that they would be illegally collected for profit, just as most of the animals in the hobby are collected, for greed.

    As I said i don't know of anyone with them except you... And be careful about what you were saying regarding experts as apparently you think of different "experts" when talking the science of the hobby then anybody else does.

    I dont know too much about this, but i believe with such species that unlicenced commercial collecting is illegal, but they arnt protected in the same way as native vetebrates (except fish). Proving these things may be hard but im pretty sure there have been prosecutions for commercial poaching of invertebrates.

    Oh im sure there thinking of the right ones, there is only one or two people i know for sure havent done anything illegal, but i have proof on all the others. Thats why me and a few others are helping to take them all down, so the future of our unique fauna doesnt go down the can for a few cheap bucks.
