Chinese Moon Moth Actias sinensis China 

This is a rare opportunity to rear a species that hardly anybody has reared.

Eggs are being laid now. Rather seldom offered.

The male is a rich yellow colour, and prettily marked. The female is a delicate shade of eau de nil. 

Liquidambar is the main foodplant.  This is deciduous, but they can also be kept on Eucalyptus gunii, which is available throughout the winter.

The cocoon is an amazing shining lime green, with circular perforations. The moths emerge after a few weeks, depending on temperature.
