Tau Emperor Aglia tau  Breeding stock of 4 pupae.

 

A Breeding Stock of 4 pupae to emerge this March/April.

 

This European Silkmoth (not found in Britain) appears before our Emperor Moth and is in the same family of Silkmoths (Saturniidae).  Very easy to breed: lay the pupae out in February for March emergence. The moths fly and pair by day, and particularly appreciate sunshine.  Eggs are laid on the cage sides.  The young larvae are adorned with antlers, as impressive as the American Hicory Horned Devils! Foodplants include Lime, Oak, Birch, Hawthorn, and other trees and shrubs. Pupation is in leaf litter. Single brooded. Highly recommended.


A limited stock is reserved to sell at this special price.
