Question for those who have observed successful copulations in Automeris: Last evening (9 January) at 5:30 pm an Automeris belti female (Ecuador) eclosed in a popup cage where a male was present which had eclosed the previous day. By 6:15 pm they were in copula. Then by 8:00 pm copulation had terminated. I was hoping for egg by morning of 10 January (today) but there were no eggs. What is the usual successful copulation time in this genus? When should egg laying begin following a successful copulation?
