Description

Chinese Golden Emperor Loëpa oberthuri

 Saturniid breeders will be familiar with Loëpa katinka but this rarity is a first for WWB. The moths are very large and splendidly adorned with wavy patterning, and bright colours. The larvae change with each instar,  becoming very large strikingly shaped and patterned, and fluffy. Best not to handle because the hairs can irritate sensitive skin.

Foodplants are Grape Vine, Virginia Creeper and Boston Ivy.  The larvae thrive sleeved outside in summer. The cocoon is tapered at the emergence end, and is best handled with care to avoid skin irriataion. Winter is passed as a cocoon. There may be two generations in a season if conditions in hot conditions.
