EsMj007 Cymbalophora pudica Young Larva

EsMj007 Cymbalophora pudica Young Larva
Arctiidae, Arctiinae Length (2nd Instar) : 15mm

Eggs laid by females of this species when waiting in our holding pots whilst recording them were collected and brought back to the UK to attempt life cycle exploration. After hatching a few weeks later, and following research on the Web, the young larvae were offered coarse grass leaves, which were accepted readily and enthusiastically, and their size progressed continually. Around 50 larvae made up the growing culture.
