Camberwell Beauty (Mourning Cloak) Nymphyalis antiopa European race

Larvae are now too large to send internationally. PUPAE can still be sent overseas. 

Camberwell Beauty larvae feed on Sallow Salix caprea, Willows, Birch and some other trees. The larvae are gregarious nearly until pupation when they are most handsome with long branched spines and wonderful contrasting red  blotches on the black ground colour. When it is possible to sleeve the larvae, we recommend this above keeping on cut food, but in wet summers the larvae easily succumbe to disease. It is a good idea to cover the sleeve with polythene to protect from rain, but don't wrap polythene around the sleeve. The just need a roof or umbrella, with plenty of ventilation all round.
