Description

Eastern Eyed Hawkmoth Smerinthus planus A species not seen on WWB lists for a great many years! This wide-eyed hawkmoth is brightly coloured and very interesting to rear in comparison with our own Eyed Hawk.

Ocellata larvae can be fed on Privet and Laurel out of season, and the same may to apply to its Oriental cousin, Smerinthus planus.

The beautifully camouflaged larvae feed on Willows and Poplars, and undoubtedly Apple and other foodplants that our own ocellatus feeds on.

Don't miss this opportunity - the last time we had was nearly 50 years ago!
