This thread is for all information on this species, and subspecies, as neither has been documented in captivity before (to my knowledge) it would be a good idea to record any info on them, egg laying, hatching times, hatching rate, prefered foods, temperature etc.. to help everyone keeping them get the best conditions for them, I will be distributing both species to members on here (and Bugnation) that are interested in keeping them soon, so anyone who has them, please use this thread if possible, to keep the information in one place, rather than lots of seperate threads.
Ive just moved my Pleurodonte marginella into a larger storage container, with lots of vertical pieces of beechwood, covered with mosses and lichens, Im told they eat mosses and lichens from branches in the wild, I'll be doing the same later today for my semiaperta. So far both has eaten cucumber. They appear to be shy, they arent nocturnal though, Ive noticed both active during the day. Im keeping them around 22-24c at the moment, and quite humid, above a tank thats heated, and they seem ok.

I am pleased to say my two have settled in really well and don't hide when being handled....not that I pick them up all the time but 1 of them took the best part of a day to come out.They have been eating sweet potato,courgettes and baby sweetcorn thinly sliced with a potato peeler.
I've just got a couple of P. marginella and can't answer the question. My P. isabella are doing great. The babies need mucha higher humidity than the adults. Adults are very hardy in my experience, while the young are more sensitive.
