Antheraea cf celebensis
Antheraea cf celebensis male grey/brown form

This stock was sold as Sumatra import under the name Antheraea sumatrana. However, most likely they are:
1. not A. sumatrana
2. not from Sumatra
3. probably A. celebensis from Sulawesi

    Hi Jurgen ,regarding the Antheraea stock, from the info i received .The cocoons came from Province of Aceh,Sumatra.The females were trapped at a alitude of 2000 m.Larvae were reared on Persea americana.I've sent photos of male and female moths of the colour forms which have emerged to Bill Oehlew,he thinks the moths are A. sumatrana.
