Eryphanis polyxena & Opsiphanes tamarindi pupae, update from Costa Rica.
By the end of July, we are going to receive a stock of 12+ species of neotropical butterflies and moths from Costa Rica. We have changed the list and added 2 species more. Both of them are similar to Caligo sp. and are perfect for a butterfly house: Eryphanis polyxena (Eryphanis automedon) & Opsiphanes tamarindi. The full list has been updated and you can check it here: PUPAE LIST FROM COSTA RICA.
Pupae will be ready to ship by the end of July. They can be combined in a single parcel with the other pupae from Costa Rica. Express delivery is required for these species.
