This listing is for 1x animal, of a beautiful species of moth that hails from Mexico. Species in this genus are famous for the large, translucent windows they possess on their wings.

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from South America. The adult moths do not feed and rely on fat reserves they stored up as caterpillars. The food plants for the caterpillars are plants such as privet, cherry laurel, etc.
