a couple pictures of regal moth (Citheronia regalis) pupa
I knowticed on your site that you guys were “lacking” images of the regal moth in its pupal stage. Well this past summer I raised some of these guys and took some pictures of the pupae. They’ll be hatching in a few months aswell. Enjoy

Hi Ryan,
There is nothing like instant gratification. The ink was barely dry on our request and your photos were in our mailbox. We have been so busy it has taken a few days for us to post them live. Thanks for sending your Regal Moth Pupa images.

    I found one of these outside on the ground, is it ok to keep it in a cage till it hatches?

      Yes. It should be exposed to weather conditions so that the adult moth emerges at the appropriate time to find a mate and procreate.
