Actias dubernardi China

 This is a species that is very difficult to obtain.

 The moths are most delicate and have exceptionally long tails for their size. Male and female are differently coloured (the male is the pink and yellow one).

 The larvae feed exclusively on Pine, amongst which they are extrordinarily well camouflaged. Young larvae mimic the Pine make catkins. Larger larvae are easily lost among the Pine needles, yet they are contrastingly marked and patterned with bright spangles, and startling colours between the segments.

 This is a must for the serious breeder!
