Marbled White Butterfly Melanargia galathea

 This quantity offer is possible because breeding was so good last summer, and survival rate very high. If you wish you could reinforce a colony or start a new one, now is the opportunity to release a meaningful quantity. 

A favourite from the chalk downlands of southern Britain. Pre-hibernation larvae which live on potted coarse grasses and produce butterflies next year. To hibernate these larvae you need potted grass, securely contained in a netting sleeve.  Make sure you evict any spiders or other predatory creatures! Keep the pot outside in natural weather conditions.

In spring the larvae will stray, and again in summer when they are ready to find a secluded place in which to hang and change to pupae, so make sure they are in a secure enclosure.
