IMPORTANT: this year (2019) few wild S. cynthia cocoons are now emerging. Very big and healty pupae. Easy to rear and mate, early instars caterpillars are strongly gregarious. This species can survive low temperatures despite its south-east asian origin.They are still overwinting but since now this cocoons can be awaken!
