I have Automeris io, Actias luna, Hylaphora cecropia, Hylaphora columbia, Callosamia promethea, Rosy maples and Samia cynthia. I am planning to try Antherea polyphemeus and Eacles imperialis next year. However, I am just out of range for Callosamia agulifera I wish I could get those

Nice, Yes, C. angulifera are some of my favorites along with imperialis. Ever get Regalis? for some reason I have never found D. rubucunda! Lucky you getting H. columbia(and cynthia too). If you get extra columbia let me know.

Regalis is also out of my range. I am getting Eacles next year however I'm not really keen on getting Antherea polyphemeus because I live in an area with that species and they hate inbreeding

Yeah, polys are my least favorite. I haven't gotten regalis either. I want to raise C. securifera some time. I think I am right on the border for angulifera. I have seen them only a few times though.

I can help you guys out with regalis in June if you're interested. I usually have piles of eggs.

I get angulifera from time to time as well. They can be problematic to rear though as they do best on more mature Tulip Plpolars.

I kind of wish I was in your state now. I would prefer it if you came to Canada?

There is a sighting of Angulifera an unnerving 55 minutes from me. However this was 3 years ago and hasn't been seen since. Regalis have not been sighted in Canada but have been seen very near the border at 2-3 hours away from me in Rochester. SO DANG CLOSE  Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Nice! I would love to try regalis next year! I can get sphingidae eggs of several species if you want? Those angulifera are very nice, maybe next year will be my lucky year Smile .
