Madagascan Emperor Antherina suraka 

Not only is the moth highly colourful and attractive, but the larvae are also fascinating, with more different forms of colour and pattern than we have seen in any other species! 

The black stage, marked with orange tubercles, changes to green with a variety of other colours and patterns. They are easy to keep and will take a variety of foodplants. Those reported include Oleander, Privet, Willows, Beech, Liquidambar, Hawthorn, Grapevine, Lilac, Cherry, Laurel, Forcythia, Rhus, Pistachia, Apple, Pear, Plum, Peach and Cabbage. In winter Privet is the ideal foodplant.

Keep the larvae and cocoons warm and moths will emerge from cocoons without a dormant period. The moths are the easiest of all species to breed.

We highly recommend this species.
