American Oak Silkmoth Antheraea polyphemus 

 

The hindwings of both sexes have huge target eyespots. Pairing sometimes easy, other times changes of setup are needed.  The female lays a large number of eggs.

 

The larvae are easy to rear on Oak and will accept Hawthorn, Birch, Maple, Osier (Basket Willow) also probably other willows  some other trees. Along the sides of larger larvae there are silver spangles, like drops of mercury. Very attractive. Early rearings will produce moths in the same season.
