Keep eggs refrigerated until late March, or when the first buds open.

The last time this species was offered by WWB was over 40 years ago!  The young larvae are most decorative. Recorded foodplants include Ornamental Crab Apple Malus, Hawthorn, Sallow, Osier, Sometimes Privet and undoubtedly a number of other trees and shrubs.

Final instar larvae are covered in short bristles and the caterpillar is lime green all over.

The moths emerge in autumn. Their eggs hatch in the following spring.
