Spurge Hawk  Hyles euphorbiae 4 Pupae

 

These  pupae are extra fine in size and quality. Only a few. They are for breeding this summer.

 

Dormant pupae are kept cool for the winter. Adults emerge in June/July.

 

Provide nectar flowers and potted Spurge plants for egg-laying. The best Spurges are Cypress Spurge (cyparissias), Wood Spurge, Sea Spurge, and the annual Sun or Petty Spurges are all suitable.  Eggs are laid in clutches near the tips. The young larvae are black and cluster. 

 

Soon they take on amazing spots and stripes of yellow, red, white and green.  Some of the most colourful larvae in the world.
