Attacus caesar South Philippines

 

This is a large and most variable Attacus, showing interesting differences in both the adults and the larvae.

 

The females are often very large, with more transparent windows than Attacus atlas, and the background colour is interestingly coloured and textured. Both sexes are infinitely variable. The male is smaller, with very intense colouring, and the transparent windows are rather reduced in size.

 

Caesar is not difficult for the experienced. The larvae develop well on Privet. This race has distinctive larvae with yellow or orange tubercles, not seen in Attacus atlas, and rather approaching the appearance of the larvae of Coscinocera hercules. Possibly an evolution link here?

 

We recommend Caesar very highly. It is some years since we have offered this species. This is an opportunity not to be missed!
