Chinese Oak Silkmoth Antheraea pernyi

 

 

 

A large species, and probably the best for beginners. Moths emerge in the spring. They pair very easily.

 

Eggs are laid on the sides of the cage. The larvae feed on Oak, Apple, Hawthorn, Willow and undoubtedly other trees and shrubs. Black at first, the larvae become green, with decorations of orange.

 

The larvae become very large and eat a great deal of food. Although an oriental species, pernyi  has now become established in Europe. Highly recommended for those who are looking for a spectacular moth, with LARGE exotic larvae: easily reared.
