If you can get your hands on eggs of a Philotherma species, do not hesitate. Many species in this African genus are robust and beautiful moths. Best known species and locally common is Philotherma jacchus. Many of you will have seen pictures of the ten centimeter long hairy caterpillars. Most of the 28 species in this genus however have never been reared and pictures or illustrations of caterpillars are rare. 

Based on my experience with jacchus, rosa and sordida I would say that they are not difficult to rear as long as you respect the basics (warm, clean, dry).
