This silkmoth used to be in the genus Antheraea and is now re-named as a unique genus. Eucalypti occurs in Australia and New Zealand. Pairings are not difficult and rearing of the larvae on Eucalyptus is very easy as long as they are warm and in healthy conditions. Birch is reported as an alternative foodplant. The young larvae are gregarious.

 

Larger larvae are most beautiful and this is a species that we would recommend for breeding. Being from the southern hemisphere, the moths would normally emerge towards the end of our summer, but they will usually emerge earlier if kept warm and regularly sprayed.
