genus: APOCNOSIS J. Thomson, 1878
species: striata Janson, 1877
origin: Zambia, Mufumbwe; leg. Petr Malec 1/2005
origin2: Tanzania, 10 km SE from Lindi; leg. Petr Malec 1/2011
wild imago size: around 20 mm
note: Apocnosis belong to long living beetles, imago may live up to 2 years in captivity. Breeding must be simliar to Diplognatha, but so far is unknown to me. Wild adults never laid any eggs. It may be caused by unsuitable conditions in terrarium (wrong humidity or temperature) or specific reproduction diapause for wild beetles.
