Ditumabo falls / Cunayan falls > Aurora province > North-East Luzon
The first species of that genus I post to my blog, more coming up in a few weeks or so :))
Beautiful and quite large Obrimini, especially the female, she is strong build with strong cloth grip.
Breeding is very easy going and quite fast growing, here they feed nicely on Mango. [Thanks Rob and Joachim]

Negros island > Visayas > Central Philippines
Another beautiful species from this genus, the 3rd posted here. This one feeding on various palms > I successfully breed them using 2 very common palm species - Areca, which can be given directly to them, leave very thin and easy to bite, however using only the softest new ones for hatchlings and L1-L2 - Adonidia, leaves harder shall be used for later stages L3 and up and always cut the very hard leaves edges with a sharp scisor.
Species is producing a very small number of eggs but seems to have a longer life span.
[Thanks Bruno]
