The offspring of Halomitra clavator are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Halomitra clavator, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Halomitra clavator, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Very special thanks for this foto to Prof. Dr. Gustav Paulay, USA!!
