Common name - Giant Leaf Insect
Scientific name - Cryptophyllium limogesi "Thac Krong Kmar"

This listing is for 5 EGGS, of a new species of giant leaf insect native to Vietnam. This species rivals Pulchriphyllium giganteum as the largest leaf insect species available in the hobby, with females reaching the same size, if not slightly bigger. This species can come in multiple colour morphs with the most common being green, and the next being yellow.

As with most Cryptophyllium species, hatchlings feed very easily without any fuss on bramble. This makes C. limogesi significantly easier to raise than P. giganteum, proving itself as a beginner-friendly option for those that want to raise giant leaf insects but struggle with P. giganteum.

These are CAPTIVE BRED, with this stock originating from Thac Krong Kmar, Vietnam. The food plants for this species are bramble, raspberry, oak, beech, etc.
