The Hickory Horned Devil or Regal Silkmoth Citheronia regalis North America

 

This exotic species has not been available in recent years. We now have a breeding stock which is emerging and breeding. Most orders have been supplied. We are waiting for more moths to emerge. Please order NOW.

 

This is a star species, one of the grandest you can rear and now very difficult to obtain. The moth has unique colouring and pattern.

 

The caterpillar is adorned with spectacular spines behind the head, from birth to the huge final instar caterpillar. Walnuts and Hickory are favourite foodplants. They have also been reared on Willows, Privet, Ash, Stags Horn Sumach and Hazel. Doubtless other foodplants may be taken. The larva pupates in the soil and the superb moths emerge the following summer.

 

It is hard to find a more spectacular species than the Hickory Horned Devil! And it is easy to rear.
