Duke of Burgundy Fritillary Hamearis lucina

 

It is years since we have had Duke of Burgundy larvae. Now very hard to obtain. 

 

Curious oval larvae like those of the Blues, but not green like those, more a straw colour, with rows of black dots. They live on Primrose or Polyanthus leaves.

 

Not difficult to rear on a potted plant. Resulting pupae have similar colouring and pattern. Store the pupae in a fridge until May when the delightful butterflies emerge.
