Scarce Fritillary Hypodryas maturna

We are very pleased to be able to offer larvae of this scarce and interesting relative of the Marsh Fritillary. It is an arboreal species, frequenting woodland. The larvae particularly favour feeding on Ash and Aspen, as well as feeding on Honeysuckle and Scabious. There are some isolated colonies in France and Sweden, but most are found in extreme Eastern Europe and eastwards towards Siberia. Winter larvae can be hibernated in sleeves.
