Hissing Hawkmoth Phyllosphingia dissimiliis Far East

This is the first time offered by WWB. 

The larvae feed on Walnut Juglans, Alder Alnus, Birch Betula, and is reported to accept Salix Willows and Sallows. Mature larvae are extremely handsome and often varied in their colouring and pattern. The pupae, formed underground, are not only rather curious in shape and very rough texture, but they have the extraordinary habit of becoming active at night, particuarly if they are in the light. They wriggle, hiss and jump around and are able to burrow themselves into soil! By day they are totally still and very well camouflaged as ground debris.
