Convolvulous Hawkmoth convolvuli Herse convolvuli

 

One lot of 3 pupae - sold to the first buyer.

 

It is unusual to have overwintering pupae of this grand species. The pupa has an exceptionally large proboscis case protruding, like a jug handle!

 

Store the pupae cool for the winter and allow to hatch in May/June, or you can incubate them immediately.

 

The larvae feed on most Convolvulous species. The moth likes to feed from deep throated flowers (Tobacco Nicotiana is a favourite).

 

Females lay a large number of eggs.
