Silver-spotted Skipper Hesperia comma

Fifteen eggs of this scarce Skipper butterfly. Store the eggs refrigerated until February. Then transfer to a pot of coarse grass. Pot and plant totally enclosed in a sleeve.

Keep the larvae on potted coarse grasses, covered with the sleeve to prevent straying and predation. Sheep's Fescue grass is particularly good. The larva uses silk to construct a shelter, by sewing together the edges of a grass blade, The larvae hibernate on the potted food, which is best kept outside. In spring the larvae resume feeding, pupate and produce adults in early summer.
