Pseudantheraea discrepans Central Africa

We have not had these amazing green pupae for years!  The larvae pupate in small groups, spinning a very open-mesh hammock to support the pupae until the moths emerge when the rains come. We have never had another species with pupae like this.

The moths are infinitely variable. See the illustrations.

There are few accounts of rearing in captivity but we believe that larvae will feed on Salix (Willows, Sallows and Osier). Undoubtedly other foodplants will also be accepted. The picture of the larva here is a species whose larvae is very similar.

Here is an opportunity to try something really new and exciting!
