Chinese Oak Silkmoth Antheraea pernyi

 

A large species, and probably the best for beginners.

The moths emerge in May onwards. Eggs are laid on the sides of the cage. Feed the larvae on Oak, Apple, Hawthorn, Willow and other trees and shrubs. Black at first, the larvae become green, with decorations of orange. They 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 exotic larvae, and easily reared.
