Agapema homogena from Arizona 

Extremely scarce. Never before offered by WWB. The range of this species is limited to about 3 North American states, and parts of Mexico. Found at some altitude.

Eggs are laid in groups, and take some weeks to hatch, depending on climate, they can take more than a month.  Young larvae are gregarious, later becoming more solitary. They feed on a curious range of foodplants: Buckthorn Rhamnus, Currant Ribes, and Willows Salix.

Cocoons are spun in concealed places at or near ground level. The moths emerge in the following summer.

This is a chance to rear a very unusual species, and maybe discover new foodplants.
