Whilst on the Subject of Pugs ...

On 30 July last year I was looking for V-Moth larvae on my currant bushes (haven't found any yet!) when I came across this one:

I knew that it wasn't a V-Moth but couldn't identify it, so I decided to breed it out and shortly afterwards it turned into this:

... and this morning it became this:

... and a bit later on, this:

All of the evidence points to it being a Currant Pug!


  1. Excellent result, Chris. Hopefully I'll be able to put a Bilberry Pug on here a bit later on.

  2. Brilliant pxhotos, tells a story.

  3. Thank you both for your interest, it's taken a long time for the story to resolve itself but well worth the wait. The moth was released onto a currant bush, plenty of foliage to spare. Yes Chris I'll look forward to seeing the Bilberry Pug outcome, Bilberry is more notable than Currant!
