    They remind me more of balunga than of akarensis…any suggestions?

    Is the ‘Talikan’ in reference to the place in Kalimantan Timur Stefan? If so these were collected a lot closer to the known distribution of B. balunga than B. akarensis right?

    Is there something about the way they look that made you guess at B. balunga?

    Yeah in reference to KalTim. I must say I haven’t checked biogeography yet (I’m challanging myself for a bit).

    Maybe posting some pics of postively identied balunga helps?

    The closest I have ever kept were the cf. balunga that came from Herve’s friend at the IGL in Zwolle. They didn’t look like either

    I saw those when I was over in 2008, haven’t I? Don’t remember what they looked like but they weren’t balunga indeed. Got a pic of it? Real balunga are a very rare species and maybe enter the hobby once a decade at most it seems?

    Merci Herve; my memory needs a good jarring.

    I don’t dare to say too much from these pics…they might remind me more of a pygnax-type even…?

    Size is a variable, not a diagnostic (in this case). Therefore one cannot say it’s this or that because it has this or that size
