Epiphora mythimnia from Africa

A few cocoons are immediately available.

A fine African species, seldom obtained. The moth has deeply hooked wings and markings not unlike those of Atlas, but the colouring is a unique combination of burgundy, white and yellow, with clear triangular and circular eye-spots. mythimnia is one of the smaller species, and very beautiful.

The moths breed relatively easily. Ceanothus is an excellent foodplant and is evergreen. The larvae are extremely beautiful and have a lot in common with the white fleshy tubercled larvae of Atlas moths.

Reported larval foodplants are Ceanothus and Buckthorn Rhamnus.
