Hi Rudi, rearing the caterpillars was very time consuming, but I had few losses and I obtained many nice adults. I did nothing special. However you need some luck with Lemonidae. I know that some people find philopalus difficult to breed. It is the same with Lemonia dumi: in my breedings nearly all adults are perfect, but many breeders try for years and they still don't obtain a single nice adult. This year my hatching rate of Lemonia dumi pupae was 100%, last year under the same conditions only 50%.
is it a difficult breeding?
