Bellavista Horned Devil Citheronia bellavista  Central and South America.

A rare species, never before offered by WWB. A close relative of the Regal Silkmoth or Hickory Horned Devil Citheronia regalis.

The larvae feed on Sumac Rhus, Liquidambar and Prunus which includes Plum, Blackthorn, Portuguese Laurel and some Cherry species. Very likely other foodplants will be discovered. Larvae have much in common with C. regalis, in all stages, and large larvae have characteristic rose-pink spiney horns.

The pupae are formed underground and the adults emerge in the following year.
