This period started with some warm days, but the last days were cooler again and somewhat chilly.

Skin of recently shed large radix femaleJune 27th temperatures was around 17 – 20 ⁰C, skies half overcast.
On this day de large T.radix female shed its skin for the first time.

The orange male radix looks good and radiant so I think he has shed its skin as well.
