Agapema Homogena

It was such a surprise when my Agapema Homogena emerged from her cocoon 6 months after I got her. With all my other species they'd emerged within the first month, I guess she was just shy (or more realistically over-wintering.) These beautiful moths are usually found in Mexico and south America in forests above 4400 feet in elevation. They make their cocoons in the crevices of rocks and tree trunks near to the ground.

I chose this species because of the amazing black and white stained-glass like piping on their wings. She's actually one of the smallest moths I've raised but I thought the patterning was spectacular enough.
