I have a group of four phylliym phillipines consisting of two males and two females. The two males have matured and one female is one shed away from adulthood and the other a few away. I do not think the males will last until she matures so will the eggs she lays still hatch?

I think this species should breed without males. I searched the forums to check and found this:

Nico states that the species is parthenogenetic. Couldn't find any additional info on the web. Hope this helps.
