Tau Emperor Melanic Aglia tau melania  15 eggs or 10 larvae according to availabiliy

 

The first adults to emerge will give you a real surprise! Take a look at just how melanic they are!
 

Melania is a rare melanic form of the Tau Emperor, where much of the normal orange colour is suffused or even replaced with black. These come from central Europe and are very scarce indeed. Melania is for those who like an unusual species. 

 

The pupae emerge in April. Breeding is very easy. The larvae feed on a variety of trees which include Lime, Hawthorn, Oak, Beech, Willows and Sallows.
