Description

Pine Hawk Hyloicus pinastri

 

Moths emerge in June/July from pupae stored cool for the winter.  Provide nectar for the adults, and sprigs of pine for the moths to lay on.  The moth is patterned in shades of grey, with black streaks. A rarity in Britain.

 

Easy to pair and lay. Larvae do well sleeved on pine in pots or the ground.  The larvae are masters of camouflage in all their stages.

 

The larvae change their camouflage pattern at each skin change. Full of interest, and easy to rear.
