Thanks Sal, I will check about the Rothschildia but will definetly wait for Brahmaea. Its not for me personally but I might join the order as well.

I just thought I┤d check in for you if there was something of interest that would take ligustrum and found an ad only posted yesterday for Rothschildia lebeau eggs, and it┤s quite cheap, have a go if you like, he might have some left still. Here is the link:

Hello Oz
I do have Sphinx ligustri in 5th instar, so it won┤t be too long before I have pupae, I could sell those to you, but you would only have the adults next spring....
I also have Brahmaea certhia and B. hearsyi but they are still L3 and L1 so probably it┤s still going to be around month and a half to 2 months before I have a chance to obtain ova.

All the best

Hi Sal,
Do you have any Ligustrum feeding species at the moment for sale?
What about Rothschildia? Brahmaea?
Let me know!

Hi Sal,
I didn't make the connection but sure I remember.
I haven't reared Saturnids for a long time...
Hope all is good and happy to see your face!
With best regards,
