Description

Tau Emperor Aglia tau form FERENIGRA 15 eggs or 10 larvae according to availabiliy


This rare form, from central Europe, has bold melanic wing margins, in quite variable amounts.

 

Ferenigra is a rare semi-melanic form of the Tau Emperor, where a good deal of the normal orange colour is suffused or even replaced with black. These come from central Europe and are very scarce indeed. Ferenigra is a form for the connoisseur.

 

The pupae emerge in April. Breeding is very easy. The larvae feed on a variety of trees which include Lime, Hawthorn, Oak, Beech, Willows and Sallows.
