Lovely, a moth I've recently

Lovely, a moth I've recently reared, have about 30 of these in the shed (not empty!); looking forward to seeing the adult in a few months!

Best wishes,

Douglas

Douglas, I forgot to respond

Douglas,

I forgot to respond at the time you posted this, they will be beautiful things when fresh, the males dont even look real they are so ornate, as you well know. Incredibly beautiful moths.
