These are unsuitable to send internationally but can be sent to GB addresses.

You get adults of both sexes. Very attractive insects, easy to keep in a ventilated cage, feeding on Privet. They enjoy a spray most days with tepid water.

This species comes from just a small area in Peru and are not known from anywhere else. They are very special.

It is best not to let YOUNG children have the insects walking on their hands, because they have a defence mechanism that produces a pungent fluid when they are alarmed. Sometimes an irritant. You should wash hands after handling.

The insects are otherwise completely harmless. Their appearance in contrasting black and scarlet is an interesting example of colours that warn off predators.

Eggs are laid loose on the bottom of the cage.
