THE INDIAN SILK MOTH AKA GIANT SILKWORMMOTH AKA FISH-LINE SILKWORM (Saturnia pyretorum)

As the title says, this is the lovely INDIAN SILK MOTH AKA GIANT SILKWORM

MOTH AKA FISH-LINE SILKWORM (Saturnia pyretorum)


this is one of the many moths featured in my book about the bugs of Hong Kong....see more information below as a sample page. Most people would see these large brilliant yellow and green/blue caterpillars rather than the nocturnal moth.


Here below I found one of the caterpillars making the hard chrysalis that you can find in the parks around Hong Kong, particularly in the Lions Nature Education Centre in Sai Kung.
