Bilberry Pugs

 Two of the larvae I collected on 17th May hatched yesterday evening 3rd June

I'll be returning them to Llyn Llech Owain where they came from today.

Bilberry Pugs Hatched 3rd June 2021


  1. A great result, Chris, stunning moths. The effort of home breeding is very worthwhile, it lets you see them in pristine condition which isn't always the case with trapped specimens.

  2. Thanks Chris, and very true. Especially for micros where it often comes down to the foodplant for ID.
