Size: 5.1 mm
Reared from toadstool mushroom.

collection date available?
Moved from Beetles.

information needed?
What additional information would you like?

just the date, thanks

date information
I thought the date was only to be put in when the specimen was wild caught and not when reared. When I put the date in the system wants to put in a day and not just a month and year. The exact date they began emerging I do not recall. Toadstools were probably collected 30-45 days prior to emergence and kept indoors.

perfect, thanks
