HYBRID cocoons of Giant Peacock moth with Ligurian Emperor Moth PYRI x PAVONIELLA

Just one lot of 4 cocoons, sold to the first buyer!

Never before have cocoons of this remarkable hybrid been available from WWB, neither are they seen in most collections. It is exceedingly rare to have this hybrid!  Being a hybrid, the moths are sterile, so they are items for collectors, and a wonderful subject for rare photographs, rather than for breeding.

We cannot guarantee the sexes but will supply cocoons of differing sizes. The male, illustrated, is much larger than pavonia, with slightly muted colours. The female is also shown amongst the illustrations: like pyri, she is larger than pavoniella but the colour and pattern is more like pavoniella than pyri.

Few collections have this hybrid represented, and this is a chance to hatch out and have very fresh and perfect specimens.

On Ebay we have seen specimens of this hybrid in the past at more than ten times the price of these cocoons. They are a bargain!
