a smaller Molippa species, with a wingspan in between 5 and 7,5 centimeter
In captivity continuously
Robinia (recommended), but also Rubus
Not difficult. Somewhat slow growing species that can be reared in relatively small, well ventilated plastic containers. The caterpillars need 7 to 8 weeks to develop. If you're using Robinia, a netted cage is not recommended (it is impossible to keep cut Robinia leaves fresh in a netted cage). Daily food changes are best. Keep warm, dry and clean. The pupal stage is short (only 3 to 4 weeks).
