Phoenix worms appear to have a good calcium to phosphate ratio - but certainly no better than earthworms or nightcrawlers. In my opinion, they are a good source for providing variety in a diet or where the keeper is squeemish about cutting up nightcrawlers into smaller, feedable pieces. See this article from our Caudata Culture section: http://www.caudata.org/cc/articles/foods2.shtml

Just a note, "high calcium" doesn't mean much of anything unless D3 is provided for synthesis.
