Description

Actias isis from Sulawesi, Indonesia.  10 eggs or 7 larvae, according to availability.

We have supplied summer orders for isis. More eggs will be available in October.

The male has some of the richest colouring of all the world's Moon Moths. Both sexes are giant. The female is even larger and is bright yellow, with large moon-like markings. Her tails are stockier and shorter.

 

The larvae grow well on Liquidambar styraciflua or Eucalyptus gunii. Reported alternatives include Hawthorn, Oak, Rose, Sallow and Privet, but there is no confirmation of this. We would also suggest trying Osier Salix viminalis.

 Actias isis  is very seldom available. Please order early to avoid disappointment.

 

Our thanks to Alan Marson for letting us use his rare photographs.
