First Update (May 6th)
C. Anthrax - Currently with no brood
C. clarithorax - I'm not going to post a picture of all nine, all besides one winged queen have eggs or brood. There's two "special" C. clarithorax queen that I have, one is proportionately larger than the common size and one is proportionately smaller than the common size.
C. essigi - Currently with two eggs. I wish these didn't darken as much as they do after flights, they are very pretty before they darken.
C. cf. maccooki - Currently with 10 eggs. This is for sure a C. cf.maccooki (top tube), it doesn't key out to other species that look similar. (second picture for size comparison with C. us-ca02).
C. Maritimus - One has a nice amount of eggs (this one), the other does not have any.
C. semitestaceus - Has some nice brood and a pupa or two.
C. us-ca02 - Both have brood and a pupa each.
C. vicinus - Has some brood.
F. francoeuri - Only two weeks old and already has multiple pupae.
L. occidentale - Both have giant piles of eggs.
M. creightoni/tenuinodus - I've yet to key the queen out. I've had this queen for almost three months with no eggs being laid, two weeks ago when I last checked she had one of the piles of eggs now she has two. Both piles have ~15 eggs each.
V. pergandei - This queen first laid about 35 eggs and now has a pile of eggs and larvae.
