Chalkhill Blue Lysandra coridon

Store winter eggs in a plastic box in the fridge until April. In late February place the eggs on a potted plant of Horseshoe vetch and enclose both plant and pot in a sleeve. Keep outside, as they are used to survival in all weathers. 

Wonderful larvae, marked with yellow and green to melt into a flowering patch of Horseshoe Vetch.  As they grow the larvae are most striking and unusual.

The foodplants are Horseshoe Vetch Hippocrepis comosa and Crown Vetch Coronilla. These are specialised foodplants that occur on chalk and limestone. Please ensure you have access to foodplant when you order.

 The larvae will pupate and produce butterflies this summer.
