    I purchased a pair of these oddball bugs last year. I decided I would try to breed them and I am happy to say that it worked.
    Sexing these are easy as the male's pedipalps are much longer than the female's. This is a pic of my male.

    After mating, the female lays a cluster of eggs that she carries around underneath her abdomen which later hatch into 1st instar young and will stay with the mother until they molt

    After molting into 2nd instar the young will then leave and be on their own. Here are the young after leaving Mom.
