Another first in the hobby, this smaller species (about the size of Cubaris murina) was collected on the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, not far from Cancún. Unlike most isopods, this species does appear to enjoy supplemental heat, and the enclosure should be about 1/4 damp (with sphagnum moss) and 3/4 dry. They can be a challenge to care for and breed, but well worth the effort--what other species has that fade? They also seem to appreciate limestone, as most were found on limestone fragments in their natural environment. As this is likely an undescribed species, we aren't quite sure what to call it, though it may belong to the genus Venezillo and "Maya" appeared to be a fitting name.
