Canary Admiral Vanessa vulcania

This is the first time we have had this scarce species, endemic to the Canary Isles. Larvae feed on nettle. They live in individual leaf tents, like the Red Admiral atalanta.  Larvae will produce adults this year and go on to produce multi generations, but we know of no instances of breeding vulcania in captivity and it has yet to be discovered how they react in captivity.
