Madagascan Moon Moth Argema mittrei

 

 

Eggs of this huge Moon Moth are the largest we have ever seen. See the photo of one compared to other Giant Silkmoth eggs!

The larvae like warmth but not excessive temperature: likewise humidity but not too much. They feed well on Eucalyptus gunii, Rhus typhina and Rhus glabra. Also Liquidambar.

Huge netted cocoons of silvery silk – probably the biggest cocoon in the world! Both male and female moths are tailed but those of the male are very extreme.

 

The larvae feed on Eucalyptus and are easy to maintain even in winter.

 
This is a species that the connoisseur should not miss!
