SIlver-striped Hawkmoth Hippotion celerio 15 eggs or 10 larvae according to  availability.

Hardly ever do we have livestock of this rare migrant. The larvae have realistic eye-spots, and they come in shades of green and brown. They feed well on Fuchsia, Virginia Creeper and the common creeper Boston Ivy, but also a wide variety of other plants, many un-related. These are some recorded foodplants: Grape Vine, Parthenocissus, Willowherb, Impatiens, Mullein, Lilac, Dock, Sorrel, Begonia, Arum, Caladium, Bedstraw, Zantedeschia.

Fast growing if kept warm. They sometimes take little more than a month before pupation. Moths will emerge again this year and may produce multi generations.
