Scarlet Windowed Moth Cricula Andrei India

 

We have not had this species for years. We are very pleased to be able to offer andrei again. These are from a new source. There are several Cricula species in the region, all very similar, and this is either andrei or a species that is indistinguishable.

 

This little silkmoth is extremely variable in size, shape and colour. Dramatic leaf camouflage in bright autumn colours. 

 

Pairing is easy: resulting larvae are gregarious and they feed on a variety of trees and shrubs, but particularly Privet, Oak, Plum, Blackthorn and Hawthorn. There can be two broods in a season.

 

The cocoon is straw-coloured, with some little round holes, but not netted. The moth emerges through a funnel of outwood-pointing fibres, as found in the Emperor Moth pavonia.
