    Hola Holger


    Puedes alimentar a la mayoría de los Saturnidae del género Copaxa con Aguacate, es la planta original de muchos de ellos, también he criado Cricula trifenestrata con Aguacate.

    Hi Giacomo


    Until a few years ago Antheraea pernyi was still in the Balearic Islands, I have a reference to it from about 8 years ago from the island of Menorca, a friend found a dead female and the specimen was collected and I saw it physically. Surely there will be references from less time ago.

    In captivity I have raised several generations with Quercus ilex without any problem, it was a strain from China.

    Hola sven


    Con total seguridad y probado por mí, acepta A. paucinervis, A. rotunda, A. pistolochia, A. baetica, también he criado con estas Aristolochias, Archon apollinus, Allancastria cerisyii y Zerinthia polyxena. Tengo que decir lo mejor de todo Aristolochia paucinervis.


    Saludos

    Hola Micha


    Aquí en España estamos criando unas cuantas orugas ahora con Aguacate y va bien, había muchos huevos que no eclosionaron, aquí lo podemos tener. de esta planta. Creo que posiblemente acepten algún tipo de Salix y quizás liquidambar, pero ahora también es complicado en Europa central.

    Si tienes alguna cópula aceptaría unos huevos y los podría criar con aguacate y te enviaría parte de la criada.

    Hello Giacomo


    Si sirve como información, Acherontia atropos también se ha encontrado en la naturaleza en Nicotiana glauca, Cannabis sativa, Jasminum sp., Olea europaea, y un amigo incluso la crió con pimienta, pero con la fruta.

    Hi Ute


    It is certainly a Copaxa, but it would be nice to know where the specimen comes from.
    It could be a Copaxa satellita ???? but with some doubts

    Dear Andreas


    First of all, thank you very much for the help.
    Yes, it seems to be this species, although yesterday my friend sent me the size of the extended wings is 69 mm and 72 mm wingspan, they seem to be two females, he tells me that one of them laid eggs and the caterpillars hatched but they did not accept any plant, finally, they only accepted a little bit of Schinus molle until the beginning of the second stage but they died.
    Thank you so much for everything.

    Hello Toni and Thomas


    Thank you very much for your help, maybe it seems more Mazaera francki, since the hind wings are very red, although it has no drawing on the previous wings.
    Mazaera soteria are very white the rear wings, but by the previous wings it looks something else.
    I lean towards Mazaera francki, although with a little doubt.

    Hello André


    I also bought these presumed Samia luzonica and what has hatched me I think they are Samia ricini.
    The caterpillars already caused me suspicions, also the cocoons and finally the adults confirm my suspicions.
    I have written to the person who sent them to me, which I suppose will be the same as you and does not respond to my emails.
    Pueden ser S. traedawayi? I also have my doubts.
    Did you write?


    Best regards
