DUO Small Tortoiseshell and Comma Butterfly. Ten larvae of each. 

Both species feed on Stinging Nettle. Help encourage these butterflies which are suffering terribly at the moment.

Comma larvae live solitarily and best kept separate from Tortoiseshell which are gregarious. Young Comma larvae will succeed best if placed on growing foodplant. Enclose plant and pot in a netting sleeve, tied at both ends: size 3 is ideal. Cut food is not recommended at least until the larvae are nearly half grown. Comma also do well on Elm, Hop, Osier Willow, and probably other Willows.
