Rosy Maple Silkmoth (Sycamore Silkmoth) Dryocampa  rubicunda  North America

MOST difficult to obtain!  

This small Silkmoth, highly colourful,  is very seldom available. The pupae emerge in spring, adults pair relatively easily.  The larvae feed on Sycamore and Maples.  Gregarious at first, they disperse later in life. Pupation is on the ground amongst leaf litter. A highly attractive species, easily bred and highly recommended.

The pupae are spiky, almose prickly and rather rigid. Store winter pupae refrigerated in a plastic box. In the emerging cage the pupae must always be moist. See the Pupae Nest on the WWB website. The moths usually emerge over a short period, which is rather convenient for breeding!
