Live moth pupae from the Philippines, Saturniidae
Saturniidae, which are commonly known as saturnids, consists in family of Lepidoptera with an estimated 2,300 described species. This family contains some of the largest species of moths in the world and we are very happy to offer, despite being only one species, one of the largest living moth in the world. You can order moth pupae directly from our SHOP.
|3,80EUR each (incl. VAT) – Attacus lorquinii|
Adults of these large and stunning Asian moths will emerge from pupae in approximately 2 weeks. Pairing them can be obtained in medium size (40x60cm) cages. Pupae need to be kept humid, being careful of avoiding excess of water that can cause mold to grow. High temperatures will help in synchronizing adults’ emergence. Attacuas lorquinii emergence is much more rapid compared to the famous Attacus atlas, the giant Atlas moth.
